An early 20th century Art Deco carpet 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 rug designer after Da Silva Bruhns at her father's business. The present rug reflects her predilection for symmetrical caisson arrangements and repeating geometric patterns with either linear or diamond motifs.
