Antique American Ingrain Carpet, early twentieth century - The floral repeat design of this charming antique Ingrain carpet relates more to American textiles and wallpapers of the late nineteenth century than to traditional carpet design. The autumnal palette of leafy floral sprays are highly ordered in their rhythmic repetitions even though they have the appearance of complete freedom or asymmetry. This greatly heightened by the absence of a border, which gives the entire composition a boundless, infinite quality. While few rugs can claim to be authentically American, this is certainly one than can.
