Amazing Aubusson - Vintage French Design - Floral Needlepoint Runner - 3' x 12' ft
Size: 3' x 12' ft. - Woven in China, French Design!
All real Aubussons were woven inFrance. There are two types of French rugs – the napless tapestry like Aubusson rugs, and the thick, hand woven Savonnerie rugs. Most of these Aubusson rugs come with a cream field and have delicate shadings of rose, tan, plum, green, wisteria, blue , and other colors in the design. Usually there is a realistic cluster of roses in the center with others in the corners. The borders are curing, no straight line. Generally the field is a cream or grey. Many of these have come with a great deal of soft old plum or a near-bown color in the borders, corners, and center.
None have been made inFrancefor over 30 years, except by government subsidy for gifts to foreign governments or for government buildings.
