Irish Rug, Ireland, Circa 1900This gorgeous and beautifully made antique rug – a Donegal rug made in Ireland some time right around the turn of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This fantastic piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. This classic Donegal carpet features an all-over pattern of golden-yellow scrolls with three-dimensional highlights that surround traditional quatrefoils in heraldic shades of red, ivory, blue and golden-yellow. The carpet is supplemented by elaborate continental-style borders with deeply notched arches, a number of secondary elements and architectural cartouches that become part of the overall border pattern. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its traditional design and impeccable composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
