Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – This splendid vintage Moroccan rug showcases a marvelous assortment of colorful linear motifs that create a minimalist pattern filled with rustic branches and ancient motifs. Somber cocoa browns and warm accent colors create a bold mid-century visage that is counterbalanced by the cool eggshell-white field. Expansive swaths of textural ribbed pile highlight the colorful trails that cross the field before converging with neighboring branches. Crenellated intersections, abstract geometric figures and cryptic glyphs create a well-balanced, understated composition. Carefully selected colors, strategic decorations and broad linear details form a harmonious pattern that is full of ambiguous shapes and subtle figures that possess an uncanny modernity.
