Bessarabian Kilim, Romania, Late 19th Century - While the weave, coloration, and naturalistic drawing style identify this charming little rug as an antique Bessarabian from Romania, the composition with its openwork octagon and the interlacing effect of the vines betray the influence of the English Arts and Crafts movement, especially the designs of William Morris. Rarely do we see the traditions of eastern and Western European weaving blend in such a charming and elegant union.
