Antique Alpujarra Rug, Country of Origin: Alpujarra, Circa date: Turn of the Century - This bold yet restrained antique Alpujarra rug is decorated with checkered pomegranate motifs framed by stepped borders that highlight each quatrefoil and enhance the allover latticework pattern. Zigzagging chevron borders dotted with turreted lozenges enclose the field and continue the vibrant color scheme. Contrasting details woven in crimson and spruce green offset the ivory lozenges and the oxidized yellow background. Subtle ivory details complement the tiled background that shows off the intricate details of each quatrefoil lozenge. This unique carpet from Alpujarra combines the regional pomegranate symbol with a formal latticework pattern that manages to retain the charming folksy appeal of Portuguese Alpujarra rugs while incorporating the formality of traditional European designs.
