Typical of most Bessarabian rugs this rug shows the synthesis of local folk motifs and designs inspired by eighteenth century French carpets popular at the Russian Court and in aristocratic circles. Both metropolitan and provincial antique Bessarabian kilims are distinguished from Western European urban weavings by less formal designs that manage to achieve an elegant balance between that formality and village spontaneity, making these unique flatweaves among the most sought after of decorative antique rugs and carpets.
