#21189 Donegal – Arts & Crafts: circa 1905

Rug #: 21189
Type: Donegal – Arts & Crafts
Origin: Scottland
Size: 11’6” x 15’0”
Circa: 190

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’.

Literature: Moon, Karen, ‘George Walton Designer and Architect’, pub. Oxford 1993, pages 48, 108, and plate 57.
