Antique Brussel Tapestry European

Antique Brussel Tapestry

Antique Brussel Tapestry

Antique Brussel Tapestry- 9’x10′ [1550’s woven silk]

Brussel tapestry of the 15th century rivaled Arras and Tournai. As exemplified by the altarpiece Brussel tapestry, it was noticed for its outstanding reproductions of religious painting by late Gothic Flemish masters. Where they were employed either as an altar cloth or antependium and also placed on walls behind the altar, such pieces were designed for churches or private chapels. Used to obtain the greatest possible naturalistic detailed painting, Brussel altarpieces often included silk

Brussels Tapestrys continued to dominate large-scale, high-quality production throughout the first two-thirds of the sixteenth century, and other Netherlandish centers continued to export large quantities of lower grade tapestries all over Europe, a number of smaller enterprises were set up elsewhere in Europe. Documentation indicates that there was a considerable amount of independent weaving in France during the sixteenth century.

From a commercial point of view, the most successful French workshops were those in Paris, which managed to maintain an independent existence throughout the first three-quarters of the century, supplying Brussel tapestries to the French crown and nobility.

Brussels tapestry workshops produced tapestry from at least the 15th century, but the city’s early production in the Late Gothic International style was eclipsed by the more prominent tapestry-weaving workshops based in Arras and Tournai. In 1477 Brussels, capital of the duchy of Brabant, was inherited by the house of Habsburg;[1] and in the same year Arras, the prominent center of tapestry-weaving in the Low Countries, was sacked and its tapestry manufacture never recovered, and Tournai and Brussels seem to have increased in importance.

The only millefleur tapestry to survive together with a record of its payment was a large heraldic millefleur carpet of very high quality made for Duke Charles the Bold of Burgundy in Brussels, of which part is now in the Bern Historical Museum.[2] Sophie Schneebalg-Perelman’s attribution[3] to Brussels of The Lady and the Unicorn at the Musée de Cluny may well be correct.[4]

 

 

European Tapestry

European Tapestry

This european tapestry is a wonderful drawing of an early everyday market and different trades people. It shows merchants selling their ware, kids picking berries, various characters at their best.

 

Tapestry is a form of weaving that produces a textile with clearly defined and detailed images and a principal means of creating pictures through weaving.

The tapestry technique is unique because the wefts (threads on bobbins) are woven between the fixed warp threads only as far as each color is required, instead of running all the way across the work from selvedge to selvedge.

Tapestry wall hangings are notable for their decorative appeal, strength, durability and versatility.

The art tapestry came from Ancient Egypt. The weaving principles were elaborated there. The earliest European tapestries were woven in German monasteries. The tapestries were used not only to decorate walls but also to keep heat upstairs.

In the medieval ages, the noble used tapestry to reinforce their status and extend their influence. The Burgundian dukes were the first to give tapestries the status of hard currency, using them as ransom after several disastrous battles. The tapestries became desirable luxuries and collectable object to be brought out and displayed on great occasions.

The art European tapestry reached its fullest flower in the second half of the 15th – 18th century in Paris, France at first, then in Brussels, Belgium and was widely spread though whole Europe finally. Kings and nobles took their wall tapestries on their travels from castle to castle for reasons of comfort and prestige.

Small Antique Tibetan Rug

Small Antique Tibetan Rug | Rugs and More | Santa Barbara Design

Small Antique Tibetan Rug

Antique Tibetan textiles are collected with high revere, and are woven in Nepal like this Small Antique Tibetan Rug. The wool is always hand spun, knotted and typically dyed with natural hued tones which comes from sheep in the highlands. Most Tibetan rugs follow closely to ancient traditions and customs, so you will notice colorfully simple tribal designs. A common small type of Tibetan rug is used for sleeping, sitting or Meditation. Tibetan carpets became widely popular in the 1960’s and 1970’s and was re awakened by a large amount of European commissions which in turn created jobs for Tibetan refugees in Nepal.

Antique Bijar Rugs

Antique Bijar Rugs is a town in Persian Kurdistan located in north-west Persia. The Bijar name is also used to describe the antique rugs that were produced in the many villages in the surrounding vicinity. The Bijar is noted as being the stiffest carpet made; they are very heavy in relation to their size, and very thick and durable. All of the knots are symmetrical and the rows are beaten down during the weaving process producing a dense compact fabric. Given their thickness and construction Bijar rugs can be difficult to fold. The many designs depict the Kurdish influence of the area and often floral and classical geometric motifs are employed as well as the use of large, whimsical medallion designs. The color palate is rich and jewel toned making the Bijar a highly desirable rug sought after by designers.

Bijar rugs, produced in Northwest Iran are among the finest of Persian rugs by virtue of their design and technique. They cannot be identified readily by their patterns, for their repertoire is quite rich and varied. They are distinguished by primarily by their weave, which is perhaps the densest and most durable of all oriental rugs. Bijar carpets were produced in a classical medallion format as well as in allover designs and pictorial or garden patterns. The quality of their wool is lustrous and soft, the drawing at times classically precise or wildly tribal. Some are attributable to Kurdish weavers living in the Bijar region.

Bijar rugs, produced in Northwest Iran are among the finest of Persian rugs by virtue of their design and technique.

Known for producing some of the most important Persian rugs, Bijar weavers have perfected a style of rug weaving that results in what are called “Iron Rugs.” Bidder weavers are also responsible for the so-called “Man’s Rug.”

The city of Bijar is located in the province of Kurdistan in the heart of Northwest Iran. Bijar lies between the city of Senneh or Sanandaj to the south and the legendary weaving center of Tabriz to the north. Kurdish tribes have traditionally been the region’s endemic people. However, the Afshari tribe also produced many Bijar’s workshop rugs using patterns borrowed from Heriz, Tabriz and other great weaving centers of Northwest Persia.

Geography plays a tremendous role in the history of the production of antique rugs from Bidjar. Although the Kurdish tribes have always been a dominant group in the region, they are one of the few cultures in the world who have never had their own country. Bijar’s carpet weaving traditions were formed through a combination of cultural isolation and assimilation that is evidenced in the diverse range of designs used in the region as well as the continued use of natural dyes throughout the 1920s when many other regions adopted modern methods. The rugs of Bijar encompass a broad range of styles and patterns that makes them difficult to define or distinguish from other regions.

Although Bijar was first mentioned in the 1500’s when the region was annexed with Armenia by Safavid forces, archeological evidence of domestic technology and weaving implements dating back approximately 10,000 years has been found throughout Kurdistan.

Situated in a corridor between the border of Persia, Anatolia and the Caucasus, Bijar has been at the mercy of invading cultures for thousands of years. Military invasions from Russia and Europe have influenced Kurdish culture as early as 500 BC when Cyrus the Great launched a large-scale incursion into the region. The turmoil across Northwest Persia and neighboring countries continued through the 1800s with ongoing fighting related to the Russo-Turkish War.

Over the centuries, Kurdish influence has waxed and waned as neighboring empires were distracted with their own wars. At the height of Kurdish power, the group claimed parts of neighboring Turkey and Azerbaijan. However, the Kurdish people had almost always been a subordinate tribal group that was part of a larger empire. The city’s untimely establishment on the world’s maps coincided with the re-establishment of shipping ports and the gradual decline of the Silk Road. This shift changed the course of events in Bidjar and allowed the city to maintain its weaving traditions into the early 20th century.

Rug Weavers

Influences from Persia, Russia and the Caucasus can be seen in Bijar’s diverse rugs, which include European roses, curvilinear arabesques, inset-lozenges featuring intricate Herati and Mina-Khani patterns, and Serapi-style medallions set on a stark background. The designs used on Bijar rugs often include sophisticated patterns with small details that highlight their origin in the village workshops of tribal weavers.

Examples of weavings from Bidjar include small-format rugs as well as long corridor carpets. However, large-format pieces are relatively rare. Rugs from Bidjar are known for their durable construction and strong, raised pile. Weavers in Bidjar used double weft or double knot construction along with a number of implements to create an extremely firm pile using the symmetric Turkish or Ghiordes knot.

Goats

A small number of Bijar rugs were also produced using the asymmetric Persian knot along with traditional curvilinear patterns from Persia. Goat hair is another fiber that is occasionally seen in rugs from the region. Weavers in Bijar used a unique combination of yarns for the weft to create the signature look and feel of the firm pile. First, a dampened shoot of thick weft is inserted and tamped down with tools to secure the knots. The weaver follows this with a second shoot of finer yarn to secure the entire row in place. Wool is the most common foundation found in antique Bijar rugs. However, cotton was also used. Many of the oldest Bijar rugs are extremely coarse and incapable of being folded while later pieces and rugs produced in the neighboring village of Halvai tend to be thinner and finer.

Rugs signed by the legendary master weaver Tajhavi (Taghavi) are among the finest and most prized carpets from the Kurdistan province displaying impeccable workmanship. Bijar is a small city in a sparsely populated province with a rich carpet weaving tradition. The resulting pieces are as diverse as the groups who first created them and their varied designs make antique Bijar rugs equally fitting for traditional and modern interiors.

Antique Savonnerie Carpets

During the early seventeenth century, a weaver named Pierre DuPont traveled to the Levant.  Upon his return, he claimed to have discovered the technique of creating Turkish rugs.  Oriental rugs were extremely expensive during Bourbon times, and a French manufacturer that could create the same type of rug would lower the price significantly.  Henri VI of France–the reigning monarch at the time–took advantage of DuPont’s skills and established a workshop for him at the Louvre.  In 1627, King Louis XIII founded a manufactory for DuPont and his apprentice, Simon Lourdet, on the site of a defunct soap factory in the sixteenth arrondissement (also known as Quai de Chaillot).  The name “Savonnerie” was born from the French word “savon” meaning “soap.”  DuPont and Lourdet worked together, weaving rugs under a royal patent for the king and other nobles, until they had a falling out and split up.  Lourdet remained at the Chaillot location while DuPont went to his workshops in the Louvre, though both continued to make Savonnerie rugs.

DuPont’s discovery was an ancient weaving technique called the Ghiordes knot.  The Ghiordes is the oldest known knot used in carpet production.  It consists of a symmetrical structure achieved by passing a single weft yarn over two warp yarns, pulling through between before severing the yarn to create the pile.  The Giordes knot is characteristic of Turkish rugs.  This weaving technique created a more durable structure than the tapestries created by European weavers.  Tapestries were hung on walls, while the Turkish style French rugs were sturdy enough for foot traffic.

Savonnerie rug in home

 

When Louis XVI came to the French throne in 1643, he was a mere five years old, but in 1659 he began a phase of renovations for the Palais de Louvre, at which he commissioned 274  carpets–all of a length of twenty-nine feet with varying widths–from the Savonnerie manufactory.  The process was grueling and did not end until 1697 when the final carpet for the Louvre was woven.  His favorite artist, Charles Le Brun, drew up cartoons of rug designs for the Louvre’s Grande Galerie.  The designs consisted of a dark-colored background, filled with motifs of scrolls, cornucopias, flowers, arms of France, and the monogram of Louis.  Inventories of Louis’ possessions show that in the early years of his reign, he had a number of Turkish and Persian rugs, though they were gradually superseded by Savonnerie carpets.  At the same time, King Louis was hard at work supervising the construction of his grand new palace at Versailles, and he moved his residence at the Louvre for Versailles in 1678.

Savonnerie carpets also served as grand diplomatic gifts from Louis to foreign ambassadors and other notables.  He gifted a collection of music-themed Savonnerie creations to the ambassador of Siam, where they stayed intact and in use for hundreds of years.

The legacy of the Savonnerie manufactory was a great one.  The carpets remained the exclusive property of the French rulers until 1768. In the same century, the classic Savonnerie designs were updated with lighter, brighter colors and Rococo elements.  The production of Savonnerie rugs declined in the latter half of the eighteenth century, until 1805 when the designs were revived by Napoleon. Twenty years later, the Savonnerie workshop merged with the Gobelins tapestry manufactory.  This marked the end of its independence, though the production was ever steady.  A number of the first Savonnerie designs still exist today, having survived the Fronde, the French Revolution, and two World Wars.  They have avoided going out of fashion by reinventing themselves from Louis XIV style to Rococo to French Empire to Art Deco and beyond.

louis_xiv_of_france

Antique French Savonnerie rugs exemplify the formal grace and elegance of classical European design. Like Aubusson tapestry rugs, Savonneries originated in France when European taste turned away for a time from Oriental carpets in the later eighteenth and earlier nineteenth centuries. Named for nearby factories that produced soap or “savon,” Savonnerie rugs shared with Aubussons a Neo-Classical taste for naturalistic flowers and swags or garlands in soft colors on a dominant ivory field, except that they were made in knotted pile rather than tapestry technique. Later, carpets of this kind were made in other European centers, most notably in Spain.

Finest Ziegler & Co Oushaks

Oushak rugs are some of the finest Oriental Rugs, so much so that many of the masterpieces of the 15th and 16th centuries have been attributed to Oushak. The popular star and medallion carpets originated in Oushak.

Oushak rugs are known for the silky, luminous wool they work with. The dyes tend towards: cinnamons, terracotta tints, gold, blues, greens, ivory, saffron and grays.

The late 19th century saw the rejuvenation of Oriental rug production, at this time Oushak re-surfaced as a preeminent center of weaving industry. The new Oushak industry saw two major shifts in design, floral patterns in the Persian tradition were incorporated into design and room size, decorative carpets were woven as European standards demanded.

ziegler-oushak-28360
Finest hand spun ziegler & co Oushak.

The late 19th century weavers came from villages outside of Oushak and employed tribal techniques. Paramount to these techniques was the use of larger knots (sometimes less than 30 knots per square inch) and an all-wool foundation. The tribal style fused with the older Oushak designs. The merger of the two styles created a new style simply known as late 19th/early 20th century Oushak carpets. The new decorative Oushak, commercially woven, employed a soft red, as its primary color offsetting the large-scale floral motifs from the field in a bright blue. The luxurious quality of the wool (for which Oushaks had always been known) aided the colors luminosity.

A member of our San Ysidro Ranch collection, this is a fantastic Oushak Rug by Ziegler & Company. It pairs a classic Oushak motify with a contemporary color palette to meet the design demands of today’s homes. This is the perfect rug for any room.

 

After the 17th century, Oushaks, development of Oushak rug weaving is less well known. Late 17th century saw a decline in the Oriental rug market as European consumers tended to purchase rugs of European origin – primarily Aubusson, Savonnerie and Axminster. The wane in the European market meant that Oushak production declined. Those that were still made throughout the late 18th and early 19th centuries were manufactured for upper-class people in the Turkish territories on Eastern Europe.

Towards the end of the 19th century, when the European market began to be interested in Persian carpets once again, the Oushak Oushak population did not have enough weavers still skilled in the traditional Oushak craft. Manufactories had to turn to neighboring villages and their craftsmen who still maintained traditional techniques.

Oushak carpets, particularly those known as Lotto carpets, are among the later types of Oriental carpets in Renaissance painting, as they were imported by Europeans, where they adorned cathedrals, churches, and the homes of the wealthy and powerful.

Game Park Tapestry Flemish 16th. Century

Game Park Tapestry Flemish 16th. Century 27513

Game Park Tapestry Flemish 16th. Century

This Game Park Tapestry Flemish 16th. Century is an amazing piece of woven European art.

Rendered in a “Game Park” style, in which multiple concurrent episodes of the hunt are depicted all together, separated only by the dense foliage of the forest setting. The hunters appear at various places in the tapestry.

Tapestry is a form of textile art meant for wall hanging and tapestries are traditionally woven on a vertical looms. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, in which all the warp threads are hidden in the completed work. Unlike cloth weaving where both the warp and the weft threads may be visible. In tapestry weaving, weft yarns are typically discontinuous; the artisan interlaces each coloured weft back and forth in its own small pattern area. It is a plain weft-faced weave having weft threads of different colours worked over portions of the warp to form the design.  Most weavers use a natural warp thread, such as linen or cotton. The weft threads are usually wool or cotton, but may include silk, gold, silver, or other alternatives.

At Rugs and More we carry the largest selection of certified tapestries on the west coast of Unites States and our tapestries have attracted discerning clients from around the world to decorate their walls with these classical woven arts and enjoy their beauty.

17th century Oushak

17th century Oushak

This 17th century Oushak carpet is an superb example of the best-known group of classical Ottoman workshop weavers. In the 16th century, carpet weaving was revered as one of the highest forms of art by the Turkish court. Weavers of that time had tremendous resources at their disposal in creating works of art to the utmost beauty. These carpets are made to reflect the power and refinement of the Ottoman Empire. Here, the bold central medallions flanked by half medallions, juxtaposed with the delicately drawn tracery vines proudly display this carpet´s court patronage heritage. Turkish design traditions, dictated that all designs were endless in the eyes of God, and that an artist was only able to capture a small portion of any given design for earthly representation by confining the repeat within a border. The power of these carpets was appreciated by the rulers of the East as well as by the noble, aristocratic and richer classes of Europe. Beginning in the early 16th century, Oushak Medallion carpets were featured in European portraits to signify the wealth, stature and taste of the sitter. One of the most famous of these early depictions is a posthumous portrait of Henry VIII and his family attributed to Lucas de Heere.
