About

19th century French Aubusson rug. Size: 7'5" × 8'3" (226 × 251 cm) A mid-19th century French Aubusson area rugs having an overall design of interlocking diamond and L-shaped cartouches in shades of pink, ivory, black and dusty rose and containing floral motifs. The Savonnerie antique carpet factory, located on the site of the present Musee d’Art Moderne, inherited its name from the soap making factory it took over at the behest of Louis XIII. From 1660 until 1743 Savonnerie was a manufacture royale, carrying out commissions for French Aubusson rugs and carpets specifically designed for the Royal Palaces. In the 1770s, the tapestry looms at Aubusson in the Creuze Valley near Limoges were converted to produce flat-woven rugs and antique carpets under royal warrant. No one knows precisely when European rugs weaving began in this area, but it is certain that tapestries were first woven there long before the Gothic era.
