An early 20th century French Art Deco area rug signed "Saks, France", the oatmeal field with a pair of solid broad beige zigzags running vertically beneath scattered blue and pink enlarged flowers overall within a sold brown outer border and a blue and purple inner stripes.
European art deco rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique decorative vintage style area rugs were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste.
