Antique Scandinavian Swedish Rug, first half of the twentieth century While many Scandinavian rugs are rooted in folk art traditions reaching back to medieval times, this example reflects the design of Turkish or Persian village weavings, with its central medallion and cornerpieces defining a hexagonal field. Still, the strongly rectilinear drawing and lovely coloration in soft blues tans, apricot, and green are decidedly Swedish, recalling the formal detail and palette of Rollakan tapestry rugs. This charming piece shows that Scandinavian weaving never lost touch with the oriental carpets that inspired it centuries earlier.
