Gorgeous Ewald Kroner tufted wool rug circa early 1970’s. Rainbow motif at both ends curling to meet in the middle.
Very unusual shape of rug measuring 257 x 127 cm. condition is commensurate with age and use. The rug has been professionally cleaned though some small stains remain.
However this is a rare rug and an advance in textile design for the time.
In the last photo I have tried to show the ‘EW’ as slightly raised in the design aswell as the signature.

After having studied interior architecture, he worked in England, travelled in both Sweden and Finland and then decided to create his own company in 1964. He began by weaving in his own workshop and home. In the 1970s he purchased a 'castle' and transferred his manufacturing to the Schloss Hackhausen. His business succeeded despite the impact of the 1973 oil crisis. He managed his main showroom in Karlsruhe/Dusseldorf and also seems to have had galleries in both Munich and Zurich. His first major event was his participation in the German Pavilion at the 1970 Osaka Expo. Since then his work has been regularly shown in nominative exhibitions of artists, or more institutional events such as for the Deutsche Bank, or even more recently for UBS Lucarno in February 2009. A retrospective show was organised in September 2006.
