9'10 " x 13'4" Stunning Antique English Butterfly Needlework Carpet, c-1910 in excellent condition.
This antique English rug is a rare treat for the connoisseurs of traditional art and craft.
Using a sewing needle and wool yarn to create stitches on an open grid cotton fabric called a “canvas”. This method of execution resulted in millions of individual stitches which gave a pile-less yet palpable texture and a characteristic, slightly rustic character.
This square English needlework rug consists of twenty one polygons with pastoral scenes, wreaths and flower bouquets, separated by a simple lattice with diamonds. The idyllic atmosphere of the antique carpet is further enhanced by a gentle color palette of prevailing off-white and rose, with touches of golden beige, light brown and green. Full of grace and heart warming, this exceptional English charmer will be the apple of the eye of its owners, introducing a breath of feminine character and delicacy to a wide gamut of interior arrangements.
