Vintage Deco English Rug, early 20th century - This magnificent English carpet stands midway between the world of oriental rugs and those of Europe. The tessellated design of interlocking medallion or cartouche forms derives from classical Persian traditions as much as it depends on English needlepoint carpets. The lovely soft , rosy magenta and saffron coloration of the field repeats in the border, but set dramatically on a black ground that firmly anchors the exuberance of the field.
