Description

73397 Antique French Savonnerie Palace Size Rug with Rococo and Chintz Style 17'00 x 21'00. Drawing inspiration from Mario Buatta and Chintz style, this antique French Savonnerie palace rug beautifully showcases a timeless floral design. A true impression of luscious splendor, this hand-knotted wool antique French Savonnerie palace size rug features warm hues and European charm. The arabesque vine scrolls and acanthus leaves define the elegant border and beautifully highlight the rose bouquets throughout this work of art. The embellishments alone are captivating, but the use of color is extraordinary, and principally in the pairing of such a calm, but commanding hues of brick red and terra cotta to be offset and gilded by celestial encroachments of gilt that are reminiscent of a timeworn gold. This elegant French Savonnerie rug features an all-over rustic colored backdrop with delicate floral sprigs floating in the centre field. An elaborate floral acanthus scroll border with golden architectural elements frames the composition with rose bouquets at the corner spandrels. Filigree scalloped guard borders frame the outermost border with a thick outer border beyond it. These colors join to create a truly compelling dance, and inaudibly speak with a timeless voice that is characterized by sensual decadence, as well as by stately action. All facets of this piece collectively entwine to form the striking and grand charm of a textile that is worthy to depict the tender, emotive, and vibrant details of humans and histories, no longer known. A large hand-knotted, this French Savonnerie rug was likely the special commission for a royal palace or state gift. Embodying a refined Rococo style and drawing inspiration from Louis XV, this antique Savonnerie rug will enliven nearly any opulent period-interior with color and vitality. Perfect for state room, great room, private Chambers, drawing room, bedroom, front room, living room, game room, billiard room, library, music room, office, studio, study or formal sitting room.
