This charming antique Axminster carpet from England displays an eclectic blend of Persian rug design with the taste and color sensibility of the English Arts and Crafts Movement.

Antique English Axminster Rug, Origin: England, Circa: 1900 – The charm of antique Axminsters like this lovely example resides in their eclectic blend of Persian rug design with the taste and color sensibility of the English Arts and Crafts Movement. The allover sprays of palmettes and rosettes in the field and border designs are reminiscent of the finest Sultanabads. Yet the soft coloration and drawing also recall William Morris textiles and wallpapers, which were in turn based on oriental patterns. This lovely antique English Axminster rug reminds us that eastern and western designs are not as different as we would like to think they are.
