Antique Spanish Rug 50471
Antique Spanish Rug, Country of Origin: Spain, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century– Spanish rugs are characterized by their spectacular knotted weave pile and soft pastel colors. Spanish style rugs were heavily influenced by the convergence of Arab, Christian, Jewish and Berber populations on the Iberian peninsula. This rug is typical of Spanish rugs – notice how the soft yellow and green pastels and European-style vine scrolling contrasts with the rich red and geometric design of the center medallion. Far less ornate than other traditional styles of rug, the relatively sparse design of this piece allows the eye to take in the fantastic color scheme.
