1:48 scale Aubusson rug, circa 1880

Needlepoint design by Anna-Carin Betzén, based on a full-scale rug

Stitched with DMC floss on 48 count silk gauze, the Aubusson rug measures 44×63 mm (1 3/4"×2 1/2"), plus fringe.

Aubusson is a place in France, where there was a famous tapstry manufactury in the 17th and 18th centuries. Aubusson type rugs are flat-weave (no pile). From what I've seen, they don't have fringe.
