Vintage Swedish Kilim
Swedish Rug, Scandinavia, Mid 20th Century - This distinguished Scandinavian rug created by the legendary weaving artist Ethel Halvar Andersson features a simple compartmental design executed in a vivid selection of gradated blues ranging from muted glaucous to cobalt and deep midnight blue embellished with flecks of magenta. Subtle bursts of color and variegated streaks with the movement of brush strokes incorporate a complex selection of complementary hues. Trailing borders fame the edges of each compartmental module cascading across the richly colored field. Geometric borders decorated with angular zigzag motifs, voided lozenges and achromatic white and charcoal black details offset the saturated sapphire blues and subtly shaded turquoise lozenges and argyle diamonds that enclose the composition. This sophisticated Scandinavian carpet showcases strong geometric designs and abstract patterns rendered in a superb selection of cool blues paired with soft grays and charcoal black.
