Antique rugs have been woven in Ukraine since the 17th century. One thing that makes this one unique is that few of them were produced after the Soviet Union annexed Ukraine in the 1920’s. Some were still produced by weaving cooperatives, but they were not as abundant as in earlier years. This is a beautiful piece of history and a rare find for your collection. Its garden theme will bring a touch of the flowers of summer to your home. The delightful colors and handcrafted quality make this piece one that will be treasured for many years to come.
Featuring thick textures and colors, this beautiful Ambiguous rug focuses on a repeating pattern of flowers that define the foreground. A thin border barely stands out amidst the activity at the forefront of the floral rug, and the viewer’s eyes are naturally led to the center of the antique rug, where the deep coffee brown background stands out as the perfect backdrop to the floral motifs. A variety of flowers are represented here, arranged exquisitely into a series of squares.
