Antique English Chenille Carpet, circa 1900 - A closely worked pattern of small teal-green leaves spreads gracefully, as if blown by the wind, across the soft saffron field of this antique English Chenille. One can just make out the fine little stems in the intervening spaces. A slightly different leaf pattern recurs in the narrow borders, but reversing the color scheme to provide a framing effect against the field. The overal impression created by this dense array of tiny, delicate motifs spread across such a large surface is marvelous, suggesting infinite space.
