Antique Axminster Rug 2409
A floral design antique English medallion Axminster carpet showcases a pattern of scrolling cartouches filled with graceful naturalistic sprays of carnations and garlands of pansies.
Floral English Antique Axminster Rug, Origin: England, Circa: 1900 – This classically elegant antique Axminster is the English counterpart to the Aubusson and Savonnerie carpets produced in nineteenth-century France. It shares the same taste for delicate architectural scrolling cartouches filled with graceful naturalistic sprays of carnations and garlands of pansies, all against soft ground tones of pale apricot, ivory, and mauve. The entire effect is enhanced by the lustrous, velvety pile.
