Mid-Century Modern Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Woven with vibrant medallions set over an elegant burgundy field, this vintage rug from Morocco features a timeless marriage of ancient protection symbols paired with fresh, modern colors. Symbolic lozenges and fetter symbols shaped like double arrows decorate the center of each medallion. Said to represent the cuffed shackle used to restrain horses, the fetter symbol is an auspicious motif designed to protect and unify families. This ingenious pattern incorporates simple H-shaped motifs in the borders and the stepped edges of each lozenge medallion. This simple and versatile H-shaped motif enhanced with contrasting outlines creates an eye-catching pattern and high-impact design woven in a combination of celery green, aubergine burnt orange and an opalescent shade of kohl black. Woven ends featuring narrow stripes in a sprightly combination of black and orange complete the charming updated composition of this vintage mid-century rug from Morocco.
