Description This antique French Aubusson rug features a large oval medallion against a brown field and ornate floral designs borrowed from a style steeped in a long european carpet and tapestry-weaving tradition. The Aubusson, Creuse commune of France is renowned for tapestry manufacture. Typically, Aubusson rug depended on engravings as a design source or the full-scale cartoons from which the low-warp tapestry-weavers worked. Figures were set against a conventional background of verdure, stylized foliage and vignettes of plants on which birds perch and from which issue glimpses of towers and towns. In this antique carpet, the botanical designs point to a tradition that at one point competed with the royal Gobelins tapestry manufacture. Even today, the center in Aubusson, under control of the French Ministry of Arts, is producing antique rugs and rugs of the most exquisite quality.
