Triangles & Diamonds Tapestry
Green & Pink
Marta Måås Fjetterström
A vintage mid-20th century handwoven textile designed and made by Marta Måås Fjetterström, Båstad, Sweden.
The tapestry's geometric composition is made up almost entirely of triangles and diamond shapes with only the occasional line.
The most prevalent colour of the piece is a flecked bluey-green, there are also hues of pinks, browns, blues, yellows and cream which all have a wonderful texture about them.
The wool and linen are in excellent original condition. The naturally dyed fibers are still vibrant in color and retain a sheen from the organic oily fats in the wool.
Signed AB MMF denoting the piece was woven after Måås Fjetterström passed in 1941. In excellent condition.
Measurements refer to the framed piece.
