Vintage Swedish Tapestry woven by Märta Måås-Fjetterström “Finspong Tapestry” BB6003 6'6" × 8'9"
This striking circa-1950 vintage Swedish tapestry woven by Märta Måås-Fjetterström, titled “Finspong Tapestry,” features an abstract all-over geometric design in varying shades of warm brown. The mid-century tapestry uses color and abstraction to elegant and minimalist total effect. Måås-Fjetterström (1873-1941) was a leading figure in Swedish textile design, with a workshop known for producing well-composed rugs incorporating traditional Swedish and modern motifs. In Sweden, carpets and rugs have been hand-knotted in wool for centuries, taking on many different forms and functions over the course of time. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the craft was seen as being an important artistic practice throughout Sweden, and designers began to make rugs that had a broad international appeal. Scandinavian rugs from the mid-twentieth century remain among the most desirable in the rug world. (SOLD)
