75839 Vintage Persian Mahal William Morris Inspired Rug with Arts & Crafts Style 06'04 x 10'04. This hand knotted wool vintage Persian Mahal rug features an all-over nature-inspired pattern composed of a floral garden design overlaid upon a dark background. Large acanthus leaves, stylized organic forms, blooming palmettes, tree boughs, lilies, birds, animals, and vines spread across the field in a tantalizing and vibrant composition. It is enclosed with a floral meander Herati border flanked with inner and outer carnation meander guard bands and subsidiary stripes. The overall composition is distinctly reminiscent of the Arts & Crafts movement carpet designs of late nineteenth and early twentieth century England. The Arts & Crafts movement celebrated craftsmanship and simple, informal folk styles of decoration. Leading designers of the movement, such as William Morris and C.F.A. Voysey, embraced hand-knotted rug making and crafted high-quality woven textiles in contrast to the overly decorative manufactured goods popular at the time. This vintage Persian rug continues the tradition of the Arts & Crafts movement and Donegal workshops, displaying a bold, out-sized design and earthy color palette informed by the natural world. This piece would be a wonderful addition to any interior especially one inspired by the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau or Prairie School movements. Perfect for a living room, dining room, front room, bedroom, home office, study, private library, large sitting area, studio, theatre room, private chambers, state room, great room, music room, or lounge area.
