Description:

A vintage handwoven textile designed  by Marta Måås Fjetterström and made by her workshop in Båstad, Sweden, around 1950.
Three stylized daffodil flowers - or female figures - occupy the center of the composition; their geometrical gentle dark brown outlines are infilled with green, turquoise, white and yellow; the off white natural linen background is decorated by a blue edge, two sides of which in turn boast simple geometrical decorative motives.
Four diamonds are positioned in the corners. Signed AB MMF denoting the piece was woven after Måås Fjetterström passed in 1941. In excellent condition.
