Antique Aubusson, France, late nineteenth centuryA floral medallion defined by sinuous rococo scrolls floats majestically within an ivory field on this classic French Aubusson. Pendant floral swags or garlands appear to hang form the medallion, enclosing it like a grand corolla. Tiny bouquets in the four corners occupy what otherwise appears to be an open field, although a closer look reveals a very subtle, tone-on-tone lattice pattern. A classic Aubusson border of filleted laurel garlands, floral sprays, and cartouches frames the field, giving it an almost architectural quality.
