Welcome to Maison Adorée, bringing you treasured finds from my petit maison in France... Please scroll down the page for oodles more pictures of the rug. Pictures have been taken without any artificial enhancements and in daylight.
Please note that shades of colour displayed on this page/site may vary according to your screen settings. I have included some pictures of the rug sat against a paint chart from FARROW and BALL, please use this as GUIDANCE and should colour match be CRITICAL do message me first so I can have half a chance to help.
This is a THIN pile weave, you will need an underlay/rug gripper to prevent it slipping, and is an original example, it is gloriously vintage circa mid 1900's. This will need be folded and perhaps rolled to enable posting, therefore any wrinkles resulting from travel should fall out once laid flat for a while. CONDITION: Offered in wonderful vintage pre-owned condition; dry hoovered (topside) but the following should be noted for accuracy.
Some surface marks on the binding strip on the reverse of the rug. The odd dust mark but nothing horrendous. Crease wrinkles and some of the edges roll so do not sit flushed with the floor, this is all made from storage but should drop out once left to lay flat for a while.
No large patches of baldness/excessive wear and no fade that my little eyes can see. Whilst I can easily quantify marks/blemishes, smells are not at all easily conveyed. This has come from a clean, smoke free environment and has been stored in the very same manner chez moi, my nose picked up nothing sinister and this I would happily relay as is. DESIGN - Pattern & colours: 100% pure wool needlepoint (fine) rug - handwoven in and authentic during its fabrication, woven in 3 parts and joined, resulting in a rug that is not perfectly squared nor angled - modern day reproductions are machine made so will be angled, but then they will also be lacking in all this vintage glory!!
I have added a few pictures below to illustrate the non angled/squared of the rug. A most spectacular and magnificently ornamental pattern, yet subtly elegant too.
Based on the iconic Aubusson region in France, the rug features a large oval vignette/cartouch that frames billowing rose buds and blooms sits proudly at the centre of the rug, there are borders framing the cartouche and the edges hold handsome bordering and each corner of the rug holds urns full floral bouquets. French fanciful scrolls along with accents of trailing botanicals, but predominantly iconic AUBUSSON ROSES smatter the rug. The colour palette is wonderful, quite earthy I feel, but please please refer to the pictures where I have the rug sat against my Farrow and Ball paint chart.275 cm x 175 cm or 108.3 inches x 69 inches respectively. Polite notice on the products that I sell - please take the time to read this before entering into a sale with me as it will save us both a lot of heartache later on. The mass proportion of what I sell are "one offs" and will almost always have had been pre-owned and homed/used elsewhere; thus by their very nature will exhibit inconspicuous signs to indicate their previous life. Any significant markings, stains, blemishes, rips etc etc will always be highlighted and more than often will be accompanied by a picture of the offender(s), therefore take the time to EXAMINE all the pictures. In the interests of hygiene please ensure that you have accounted for the need to have such items washed/cleaned/freshened before using.
The cleaning costs is NOT my responsibility and again, this is a cost that you should factor when purchasing SECOND HAND or PRE-OWNED products. The pictures in all my listings will have been taken in natural daylight and without the use of any artificial lighting enhancements etc. Whilst my pictures best represent the item for sale in their textures, colours and conditions etc, the pictures must be viewed as indicative of the item for sale and almost always in conjunction to the listing text.
