Description

This classical vintage rug from Sweden depicts a formal medallion with ogival curves and sweeping outlines comprised of right-angle units. The broad oatmeal-colored medallion is punctuated with rectilinear floral motifs that are mirrored in the spandrels and warm mahogany-red field, which features a subtle textural abrash. Branching appendages and extended limbs that emanate from the central medallion cut across the warm mahogany background adding to the detail and interest of the whimsical right-angle motifs featured throughout the field and borders. Sharp crenellated guard bands overlap the warm mahogany field and soft beige borders of this wonderful vintage Swedish rug. Traditional reciprocating vine scroll borders with maize yellow blossoms enclose the elegant field. Completed circa 1940, this vintage Swedish rug features classical motifs and a formal medallion blending traditional influences from the East with whimsical details synonymous with the Scandinavian region. Overall excellent condition. Sides are and ends complete and original. Rug is clean and floor ready.
