Bezalel Art School Rug, Country of Origin: Israel, Circa Date: 1920 – This captivating antique carpet from Israel’s famed Bezalel art school is characterized by a large central floral medallion of arresting blue, framed by floral and vine scroll designs in pale earth tones. A similarly contrasting border of vines serves to frame the energy of the field while at the same time extending it outward.

The geometric yet playful nature of the floral and vine designs throughout the piece communicate an attention to detail and display important cultural design elements.
