'Gulrundeln' Rya Rug
Yellow & Grey
A vintage example of Marta Måås-Fjetterström's Gulrundeln design. The textile is a knotted rya rug (long pile) designed by MMF in 1937, and made by her workshop in Båstad, Sweden, around 1950.
The pattern consists of repeating grey circular shapes with an off white border, on a yellow background. Red and blue dots with the same white border dance amongst the circles. Completing the design is a frame in white, red & blue which runs around the rug, 12 cm in from the edge. Signed AB MMF denoting the piece was woven after Måås Fjetterström passed in 1941. In overall very good condition.
