An Extremely Rare Original Viennese Art Nouveau BB6644 10'4" × 13'10" $55,000
A fine wool rug, hand-knotted in the Austrian Empire at the turn of the 20th century.
Distinguished by flowing forms combining architectural elements with natural elements, this vintage Viennese Art Nouveau rug is a marvelous hallmark of its époque. Its curvilinear main field carrying a stylized design with botanical motifs is enclosed within a decorative cartouche. The borders are adorned with a fret pattern and four corner spandrels. Although quite rich, the composition has a palpable lightness to it.
