Mid-20th Century Ukrainian 4′ x 7′ Red Field Medallion Rug on Cotton Foundation
A gorgeous mid-20th century Ukrainian machine loomed rug on cotton foundation. It’s lightweight with a vivid red field and offset rows of octagonal medallions supported by a variety of small floral motifs, within a blue lozenge and cartouche border. The rug finishes beautifully in red fringe at either end and is unmarked. These types of rugs serve many purposes and can be used as floor covering, decorative wall covering or even covers. This rug comes from a client’s estate who says she remembers first seeing it on the floor of her Russian grandfather’s apartment in Austria.
