Description An eye-catching piece of textile art professionally framed and presented in a gilt wood and acrylic shadowbox. Scandinavian flat weave with wool yarns, likely used a coverlet or blanket circa 1910-20s. The piece features the repetition of stemmed fleur-de-lis on the blue background in the center of lozenges outlined in red and matching zigzag border at each ends. The bold pattern and vibrant colors render this piece both a strong folksy and modern Nordic appeal. It is possible that the origin of the piece is Sogn og Fjordane, Norway, which is known for similar vivid weaves, but we couldn't be certain as the piece is mounted and no label or tag is detected as the way it is presented.
Provenance: From the collection of an American corporation in Texas.
Styles / Movements Arts & Crafts, Bespoke, Scandinavian Modern
