Vintage Arts & Crafts Rug
Vintage Arts & Crafts Rug Description:
This circa-1920 vintage Arts & Crafts rug by Voysey contains an all-over design of floral motifs in orange, blue and beige against a field of gray-green. A thick orange border featuring botanical abstractions follows the perimeter of the vintage early 20th century carpet. C.F.A Voysey is one of the most widely known rug designers of the Arts & Crafts movement, incorporating innovative motifs such as hearts, stylized birds, animals and flowers into his designs. His approach to carpet making diverged from the commonly conceived notion of a rug as a type of painting, instead treating the design of the field as essentially infinite and bounded only by the dimensions of the border. This allowed the carpets to be made in a virtually unlimited number of sizes without having to redesign the carpet for each size produced.
