Antique Ukrainian Needlepoint Rug, Country Of Origin: Ukraine, Circa Date: Late 19th Century  — Ukrainian Needlepoint, nineteenth century – While the various decorative elements and coloration of this stunning antique Ukrainian needlepoint relate to Western European carpets like Aubussons and Savonneries, the overall arrangement of the design into compartments is quite distinctive and probably derives from folk art textiles or quilts.
