Vintage Swedish Rug – Nejlikan Brun by Barbro Nilsson for Marta Maas, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century – Created by Barbro Nilsson at the workshops of master weaver Marta Maas Fjetterstrom circa 1950, this outstanding Scandinavian kilim features a stunning block pattern with radiant stars surrounding a coffered double medallion. Abstract motifs arranged in a precise composition decorate the field and divide the background into precise blocks while festive polka dot background motifs incorporating contrasting colors surround the prominent star motifs continuing the subdued earth-tone color scheme, which includes warm cordovan reds, clear ivory details, raw umber segments and olive green accents.

Crenelated borders with accordion folds and interlocking edges surround the expertly proportioned field and continue the soothing earth-tone color scheme. Alternating border motifs with crenellated accordion stripes and torch-like extensions enclose the precisely decorated field and continue the subtle geometry and somber selection of earth-tone colors that define this mid-century Rolakan from Sweden.
