A remarkably durable rug with a woollen foundation, hailing from an era predating standardized sizes. Its irregularity in scale and shape suggests it may have been woven for the weaver or a local resident.
This rug stands as an excellent early example of chemical dyes, featuring fuchsine dyes that undergo a captivating transformation over time, shifting from a bright purple to an onion skin tone. The captivating rose-coloured field exhibits dynamic movement with a zigzag design encompassing stylized flowers. The ivory and pale green hues in the main border and guard border add a subtle lift to the rug.
Nicely woven with clean shapes, this rug proves to be effortlessly accommodating, making it an easy and delightful addition to any living space.
