Antique Aubusson Rug, 19th century - This lovely Aubusson is virtually all frame. The field consists only of staggered roses on an ivory ground. The interest of the design lies in the grand border of rich moldings and scrolled cartouches that encloses and defines the carpet majestically from without. Supremely decorative by virtue of its understated field and its monumental yet simple frame, this carpet epitomizes the reserved design for which Aubussons are prized.
