The borders of this lovely antique French carpet of the early 20th century are classic Art Deco, as are the lilies on its delicately colored field.
Beautiful Large Size Vintage French Art Nouveau Rug, Country Of Origin: France, Circa Date: Early 20th Century - A taut sinuous inner border of interlacing vines with small palmettes is classic Art Nouveau, as is the outer border of twisted wreaths in this beautiful vintage rug. A small-scale tone-on-tone design of lilies floating on rippling water is barely discernible within the soft red field. The latter pattern recalls Japanese textile design, reminding us of the rich Oriental influences underlying European Art Nouveau.
