ANTIQUE FRENCH AUBUSSON RUG

$ 50,000
  • Description
    An unusual example from our selection of late 19th century Victorian French Aubusson area rugs, the abrashed grass green background with sprays of unusual pink, red and green stylized floral elements.

    Antique carpet production was introduced to Europe by the Moors of Spain between the eighth and thirteenth centuries. While Oriental rugs initially had a significant influence on European rugs designs, various regions came to develop their own unique styles and techniques over time. In France, starting in the seventeenth century, factories in Savonnerie and Aubusson began producing some of the most exceptional French Aubusson Rugs of the last few centuries. From 1660 until 1743 Savonnerie was a manufacture royal, carrying out commissions for pile rugs and carpets specifically designed for the Royal Palaces.
