European Large Savonnerie Carpet – Oversize

Large Savonnerie carpet handwoven from wool in Europe. Items with these proportions are considered oversize with respect to the size of a standard room.

This fine European Savonnerie carpet is published in:

THE STORY OF CARPETS, Essie Sakhai, London, 1991.


Throughout the late 19th century, and 20th centuries,  hand made carpet factories in many European centres have produced luxurious carpets in varying styles but often as in this carpet, inspired by French weavings of the Savonnerie and Aubusson factories in which delicately arranged floral motifs predominate. The palette of many of these carpets is also similar, with an overall play on shades of beige, deeper brown and pink with subtle pastel effects seen here.
