Antique Spanish Carpet with Celestial Design 48554
Celestial Star Design Square Size Antique Spanish Carpet, Country of Origin: Spain, Circa date: 1920 — The elegantly simple star design featured throughout this carpet does not take away from its charming theme. The deep, midnight blue used for the center of this Spanish carpet stands out against the celestial instances of yellow, buttermilk and gold. The beautiful, thick border draws the viewer’s eyes along its interior, where twisting vines snake along to flowery corners. At the center of the gorgeous carpet, amidst the night-like field of deep, rich blue, is a series of flowers and stars, all colored a vibrant gold and set alongside each other in alternating patterns to create a prominent astral effect throughout.
Rendered in stunning shades of rich blue and golden yellow, and featuring a beautiful repeating star motif, this antique rug is a wonderfully dreamy decorative piece. At approximately 11 by 13 feet, this rug would be suitable for a variety of rooms.
Although Spanish carpets retained their own flair, towards the 18th century they became increasingly influenced by other European aesthetic traditions, most notably French and British design. Spanish rugs from the 19th and early 20th centuries have a particularly regal and classical appeal.
