Vintage Scandinavian Rya Rug, Origin: Scandinavia, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Here is an exciting and dynamic vintage carpet – a mid-twentieth century Rya rug, woven in Scandinavia during the middle decades of the twentieth century. Boasting an exciting composition, this Rya rug is an excellent example of an enduringly popular rug weaving style. Reminiscent of the impressionistic water garden paintings created by the legendary Monet, this colorful vintage rug – a Scandinavian rug – features delicate white and yellow lotus blossoms surrounded by circular leaves and verdant foliage that floats above the saturated azure background. The textural pile creates a marvelous illusion of flowing water, subtle currents and rippling surface tension. Tropical hot tamale and olive green stripes line both edges of the beautiful symmetrically composed field. This alluring vintage Rya created circa 1940 depicts graphic floral patterns emphasized by the rich colors and sumptuous textures. Borrowing influences from warmer climates, this delightful Rya depicts classical Eastern motifs rendered in a colorful and uniquely Scandinavian manner. Unique and dynamic, this is an exceptional vintage carpet.
