English Rugs — Antique English Needlepoint Rug, circa 1900 – Inspired by the Rococo designs of French Aubusson tapestry, this elegant antique English needlepoint boasts a pattern of acanthus scrolls arranged as an interlocking medallion network, filled in turn by naturalistic sprays of roses and flowers against a chocolate ground. A long straight swag or garland of flowers serves as a border enclosing the field design, though retaining its coloration. While supremely ornamental and decorative, this piece is remarkably pictorial as well in its animated, life-like rendering of natural forms.
