The Savonnerie rug style dates back to the French royal courts of the 17th century when domestic workshops were established to replace the importation of Oriental rugs. Ultimately a distinctly French style emerged that has survived to this day.
This large rug with its distinctive center medallion and elegant floral design is a fine example of the style that deserves pride of place in a high-visibility space. Hand-knotted wool. Made in China with natural vegetal dyes.
