Antique Plush Carpet Teodor Finster Lodz Poland c 1910 58 x 80


Brand Etsy

This is an antique carpet made by the Teodor Finster Plush and Carpet Manufactory in Lodz, Poland. The factory was established in 1881, initially producing upholstery fabric and imitation fur fabric but eventually specializing in plush and wool carpets. It became the largest manufacturer of its kind in Poland, employing 800 workers. This carpet is made of a plush velvet with a crimson red centre and ornate border in tones of ochre gold, blue, green, violet, pink, black and beige. The underside is stamped in white Teodor Finster Lodz Dess. 390" along with other information. The carpet measures 58 by 80 and is in very good condition with no noted wear - there are some fold creases, but these just need to be steamed out. These carpets are rather rare and usually only found in Poland, so this is a nice acquisition that could be hung on a wall as well as used on a floor.
