Polonaise Carpets - (Floor Coverings)

Polonaise Carpets - (Floor Coverings) Persian but with Western influence suggested by the balanced composition and foreign motifs (these superb carpets are something of a puzzle to the experts). Woven of wool but more frequently of silk, and incorporating gold and silver thread, many shades of many colors are exquisitely blended, the larger areas of lighter tones contrasting with small pockets of vivid deep coloring.
