Beautiful Vintage German Tetex Hooked Rug with Tabriz Design 49121, Country of Origin / Rug Type: European Rugs, Circa Date: 1920 – This vintage hooked Tetex rug from Germany embodies the design elements of a classic antique Persian Tabriz carpet. A red field is filled with stylized, intricately woven floral motifs intertwined in a lattice pattern. The large flowers are rendered in understated colors of blues, greens, cream, soft browns, pale reds and black. The use of both rectilinear and circular figures gives a rhythm to the Tetex carpet. Delicate lattices connect larger geometrical floral motifs. The field of this Tetex vintage rug is filled with smaller flowers that become part of the lattice and encircle the bigger motifs. The careful rendering of leaves, lattice and flowers create the illusion of depth. The border presents rectilinear geometric shapes and curvilinear floral in alternating panels. The dark background of the border brings out the vibrancy of the red ground of the main panel.
