Mid-Century Blue and Grey Swedish Rug, Signed: EG BB7627 6'0" × 9'1" $16,000
A hand-woven flatweave wool rug made in the 1950’s. It bares the weaver’s woven initials at a corner: EG
This is a truly impressive and timeless piece, with a blue-grey border evocative of a long mountain range, and its main field is an intricate tessellation of sharp geometric shapes. The color palette of ivory, blues and greys is cool and soothing. Being a flat-woven carpet, it has stood the test of time very well and is in excellent condition. Furthermore, it is perfectly capable of withstanding decades of further use, which is an intrinsic part of the Scandinavian school of rugmaking.
