Antique French Aubusson Carpet, Origin: France, Circa: 19th Century – This elegant antique Aubusson has a grand cartouche medallion in the finest tradition of French Rococo. Scalloped c-scrolls enclose an interior pattern of life-like garlands and floral sprays, while a garden trellis fills out the corners of the field. A border of s-scrolls against a mauve ground nicely contrasts the ivory tones of the field. The use of shading in the ornamental details suggests three-dimensionality, adding to the illusionistic effect of the overall composition.
