A Secession rug, c.1900 attributed to Josef Maria Olbrich (1867-1908 active in Vienna and Darmstadt ) hand knotted, wool on jute.

A beautifully executed piece with naturalistic motives and ornamentation featuring symbolical elements influenced by Egyption mythological and naturalistic symbols studied and used by artists of the Secession era .

The rug is of monumental size (16 ft. 8 in. x 12 ft. 9 in. (5.8 m x 3.89 m)) which only few factories were able to produce at that time (possibly Haase of Vienna or Ginzkey factory of Maffersdorf in Bohmen-today’s Czech Republic.)

These factories dedicated best hands to create masterpieces such as this one for annual or special exhibitions in the capitals of the world : Paris, Vienna ,and London.

With a design so vivid and the use of a color palette that was so unusual, only a select few of the best masters of that time were invited by factory owners to participate in their creation.

With a limited number produced, and few known to survive for the coming generations to appreciate, this rug is rare in its design, history, and availability.
