Vintage Art Deco Rug, Origin: France, Circa: 1920 – Drawn with an elegant level of formality and modernity, this vintage art deco carpet embodies the glamour and cosmopolitan nature of early modern designs generally and vintage carpets specifically. The sparsely decorated field is embellished with a restrained signet medallion containing a stylized human figure surrounded by ambiguous decorations and a vast expanse of plush ecru pile. Elegant borders knotted in a regal combination of sienna and golden-yellow offset the neutral-tone field and complement the runic devices that embellish the central medallion. Asiatic logograms wind around the perimeter and inner edge of the warm sienna borders, which contain a parade of golden-yellow waffle-cut lyres that are arranged in a directional repeating pattern. This distinctive vintage art deco carpet has a worldly countenance with minimalist tendencies and cryptic decorations that have a glamorous, abstract style.
