Beautiful Light Green Color Background Antique Spanish carpet, Country Of Origin: Spain, Circa Date: Turn Of The 20th Century (Around 1900) – The production of antique Spanish carpets in Europe first began, in Spain, under Moorish rule in the fourteenth century, and it has continued unbroken up to the present. But while most antique rugs from Spain from the Renaissance onward evolved in a distinctive yet European idiom, this rare and outstanding example preserves the design of the earliest Spanish carpets, with rows of geometric medallions connected ornamental tracery. The interlacing “Kufic” border is strikingly authentic and beautiful. But the soft saffron and apricot coloration makes the carpet eminently well suited to contemporary decor.
