Rug #: 21189
Type: Donegal – Arts & Crafts
Size: 11’6” x 15’0”
Designed by George Walton (1867-1933) for Alexander Morton & Co.
Flatwoven Donegal carpet with a border of stylized meandering foliage contained in continuous green squares. The border frames a very open allover pattern of floral sprigs on a soft pink ground.
The simple pale rose pink and green colorway and certain design elements to the border are suggestive of Walton’s preference for a simplified and unfussy aesthetic which increased the impact of his furniture and induced a ‘feeling of rest’.
