Vintage Arts & Crafts Carpet Designed by Gavin Morton BB7551 11'4" × 14'0" $35,000
An early 20th century arts and crafts carpet designed by Gavin Morton (1867-1954), having a red field with a bold Turkish-inspired polychrome geometric trellis design of hooked palmettes, angular vinery and abstract leaves within a blue border of stylized palmettes and vinery. The present vintage carpet is demonstrative of the designer’s predilection for updating traditional Persian antique rug design by enhancing the color and enlarging and stylizing the design motifs.
Vintage beautiful rugs – they are essential objects of desire of not only vintage trend followers but all aficionados of beauty and sublime design. There is a good reason for such vast recognition as vintage carpets constitute the core of taste and artistry of the 20th century progressive thought.
