About

A breathtaking floral and grid design large size green background color antique Spanish Savonnerie carpet, country of origin / rug type: Antique Spanish rugs, circa early 20th century. Size: 15 ft 6 in x 19 ft (4.72 m x 5.79 m) This magnificent antique Savonnerie carpet from Spain was produced in the early 20th century and reflects the influences of Turkish, French baroque, and rococo elements of design. Originally, Savonnerie carpets were made in France, but these designs were adopted and recreated by rug makers all over Europe. These beautiful classically elegant works of art were found in palaces and public buildings. This fine example is an antique Spanish carpet that boasts a magnificent Savonnerie design that would fill any larger space with a beautiful garden of color. The most striking quality of this antique rug is its use of color and the artistic tension that is created between the highly open geometric grid design of the field with the classically elegant floral border. The gated sage green field contrasts beautifully with the vivid colors of the border. The graceful floral elements are carried out in vibrant oranges, neutral grays, and ivories. The earthiness of the sage field balances nicely with the bright colors of the main border. This large size rug has both vertical and horizontal symmetry, which helps add to the sense of balance in the design. The emphasis of the design is on the main border. Elements of the field connect the horizontal elements of the border, as well as the vertical ones. This gives the green colored antique Spanish Savonnerie carpet a sense of unity and order. The floral elements in the border are carried out in exquisite detail. The artist used outward motion of the eye to draw attention to the elements that serve as focal points of the Spanish Savonnerie Carpet . However, in this rug, the focal points are on the outer edge of the carpet, rather than in the central field. This treatment of line and focal point gives the carpet a unique character and makes it an artistically interesting piece. This versatile and beautiful Spanish Savonnerie would make an excellent addition to any home or office design that needs to incorporate a piece with a classic and sophisticated feel.
