M1801 - Antique Irish Donegal Rug

6ft X 14ft 11in

Arts & Crafts-Art Deco-Nouveau Rugs

Circa: 1900

Sort of an Irish Oushak with a slate blue ground displaying a repeat of semi-geometric buds and flowers along with sawtooth medallions. Unlike other Donegals, there is nothing Celtic about this unique carpet. The palette is a variant on blue and white, but not oriental. The narrow borders just barely constrain the dynamic field which pushes underneath in all directions. The spacious layout makes the carpet seem larger than it is.
