LARGE DONEGAL - 550cm x 405cm (18'1 x 13'4)CLASSIC & TRADITIONAL RUGS
This beautiful piece is produced in the same fashion as the famous Donegal rugs from Ireland around the turn of the twentieth century. Characterized by a classical Persian design of persimmon palmettes and cloudband vinescrolls which float gracefully across the open pastel blue ground. A similar pattern of palmette vines repeats throughout the border of this piece.
This is an extremely rare, elegant and richly decorative Irish carpet. Though based on oriental patterns, the drawing and the colouration -- especially the lovely mixture of persimmon, teal, and goldenrod tones are distinctly Irish.
Hand spun wool is used with natural dyes derived from flowers and berries, as well as walnut husks and pomegranate rind, madder root and indigo. The rug is then lovingly washed and finished. The end result is a rug with a real depth and movement of colour. This piece is completely unique and individually made.
