Dutch Art Deco Purple, Beige, Burgundy, Orange Hand Knotted Rug by Jaap Gidding BB7065 12'5" × 14'6" $80,000
This remarkable antique rug looks like it just came down from the looms – not only is it maintained in excellent condition but also its design perfectly fits into contemporary decorating trends. The Dutch carpet owes its qualities to its creator – a legendary textile designer Jaap Gidding.
Every inch of this antique rug is permeated with Gidding’s genius. The main field carries five decorative medallions resembling patterns found on batiks. There is no empty space on the main field yet the abundance of motifs is balanced by the simplicity of the outer border. The combination of mauve, purple, beige, carmine, burgundy, orange, navy and dusty blue is strikingly beautiful, ready to make a statement in any kind of modern décor.
Next to beautiful design, this Dutch carpet can boast about masterful execution. Carefully hand-knotted of the finest wool by a skilled artisan, the piece has survived until this day practically unscathed. Provided minimum amount of care, it will surely serve its lucky owners for generations without any signs of wear. That is the power of true craftsmanship.
