Vintage Moroccan Rug 47103
This dramatic 20th century Moroccan carpet depicts a striking double-lozenge medallion accented by suggestive duality symbols, geometric details and tribal devices.
Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-20th Century – Beautifully graphic and deeply symbolic, this vintage rug from Morocco features a potent collection of open-ended lozenges and directional tree motifs arranged in a double-medallion configuration. The fleecy white ground has a rich fur-like texture with buff buckwheat hues that are offset by nuanced fleecy brown decorations. Strong strapwork bands cut across the plush, pristine ground pulling the eye from the edge of the long rectangular composition, through the point where the lozenges meet and to the opposite edge of the expansive field. These precisely oriented medallions have graphic checkered decorations that maximize the simple, versatile brown-and-ivory color scheme while complementing the corresponding duality symbols, which are depicted as a collection of notched triangles. These age-old symbols give this exquisite vintage Moroccan carpet a strong cultural style with clear iconographic features.
