Vintage German Folk Art Shag Rug, Country of Origin: Germany, Circa date: Mid 20th Century — Vivid coloring, striking artistry, and breathtaking traditional motifs define this stunning German antique rug. Boasting a fascinating folk art design, this mid century work of art begins with a narrow black frame overlaid with a simple geometrical pattern rendered in red and yellow. This leads to a boldly bright inner border overlaid with vivid geometrical floral, segueing quickly to a narrow inner frame of saffron patterned with intricate detail. This frames the breathtaking heart of this lovely work. Soft grey and deep blue form the base, providing a stunning contrast and soothing respite from the vivid red and orange of the pattern. Traditional tulip motifs and doves are arranged in a sparse, symmetrical pattern. Stark lines and simplistic rendering leave the pattern dramatic. Bright, warm, and fascinating, this magnificent piece forms an ideal artistic statement.
