Description

73151 Antique French Aubusson Rug with Louis XV Savonnerie Rococo Style. Flourishing in technique and trend from the middle of the 17th century for nearly two hundred years, until the early 20th century, this 1880’s Aubusson carpet is a classic example of French romanticism. Characterized by predominate French influence with its ornate florals, the intricate borders of rinceaux and winding arrangements of garnished foliage enclose this captivating work of art. The symmetrical placements of opulent frondescence around the center medallion further compliment with its ornamentation. Such works of this late Baroque era would lend rich, florid and an increasingly graceful appearance to interior design, as can be noted in the piece featured here. The embellishments alone are sufficiently captivating, but the use of color is extraordinary. The 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. Embodying a refined Savonnerie Rococo style and drawing inspiration from Louis XV, this antique Aubusson 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. Well-suited for a variety of interior styles: French Provincial, English, Medieval, Henry VIII, French, Rococo, Louis XIV, Louis XI, Louis XV, Rococo, Chippendale, Regal, Aubusson, Baroque, Renaissance, Gustavian, Victorian, Rococo, Old World, Traditional, European, and Savonnerie inspired interiors with Gobelins or Beauvais style. Whether in a formal setting with elaborate furnishings or in an Ottoman style interior, this antique French Aubusson rug will bring vibrant life where it is displayed. Rendered in variegated shades of burgundy, maroon, rose, mauve, wine, olive, sage, brown, taupe, beige, sand, fern, and coffee. Abrash. Age Wear. Hand-woven wool. Made in France. Measures: 09'03 X 11'03.
