Vintage Art Deco Carpet by Paule Leleu BB4547
Vintage Art Deco Carpet by Paule Leleu Description:
An early 20th century Art Deco vintage carpet bag designed by Paule Leleu, having a dark camel field with a carefully-drawn lozenge lattice containing various fleur-de-lys, diamond and leaf motifs in red, blue and ivory within an open ivory border defined by red architectural tendrils. Paule Leleu (1906-87), the daughter of the French sculptor and designer, Jules Leleu, took over as chief antique rug designer after Da Silva Bruhns at her father's business. The present area rug reflects her predilection for symmetrical caisson arrangements and repeating geometric patterns with either linear or diamond motifs.
A specialist rug dealer in oriental and western European art deco rugs and carpets, Doris Leslie Blau’s impressive collection of antique rugs include rare Turkish, Persian and Indian masterpieces, many of which date back to the Medieval Age.
