Antique French Savonnerie Carpet
Product inquiry form
This stunning over-size antique French Savonnerie carpet features a square composition that is in perfect harmony with overwhelmingly architectural elements of its design. At the center, there is a lavish architectural medallion made up of a gilded flower and serrated leaves with sculpted looking outlines in gorgeous, perfectly shaded, tone-on-tone gleaming gold. The gentle swirl of a garland of dainty cabbage roses in romantic pink around the medallion is immediately offset by the dramatic sweeping motions of huge interlocking acanthus leaves rendered in eye-catching tone-on-tone colorations of pink, blue and celadon against a muted salmon pink background surrounded by a large swag border in olive green brilliantly colored to give off a painterly light and shade effect. The decorative sconces on all four corners as well as the outer border in the form of a spiraling coil add to the highly architectural, bold and ornamental sense of the entire design.
This gorgeous antique French Savonnerie carpet with knotted pile has a formal yet animated appeal to it. Its distinctly European, neoclassical and bold aesthetic would easily make it a focal point around which an entire design of a sophisticated, elegant room can be built.
