This rug is one of a pair. The differ primarily in their border designs. Both rugs feature two shades of blue, two shades of sienna, two reds and white.
This rug represents the ""Bomber/Tank/Chopper"" motif. These were quite common a couple of year ago, but never in the runner format. When I sold these at the flea market, people inevitably stared for a minute then said, ""OH my gosh! Those are helicopters! Are not they?""
The field is deep ultramarine, which makes the cobalt blue pop out where it is used on helicopters, bombers and details.
The combination of the grid layout of the armaments juxtaposed to the more fanciful motifs of combs, plants, and flowers in vases is very nice. In the center, lengthwise, of this rug the floral motifs turn to a crimson color for one foot. Some of the burgundy has very mildly bled, which is hard to notice except from the back.
The pattern is very attractive. Contrasts are set up by white on the dark field. Each part of the pattern employs the white differently, creating a the attractive contrast. The outermost border is a light, detailed and linear motif. The main border features white hooked medallions. The field is dominated by the irregular shapes of the weapons (large) and the floral motifs (small).
It would be nice to keep these two rugs together, so if you have an interest in both, we can give a bulk discount.
