Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a beautiful and exciting vintage carpet – a mid-twentieth century Moroccan composition, characterized by a lovely and stimulating parring of reds and ivories. Mid-century Moroccan carpets such as this fine example are prized for their cultural authenticity and for the tremendous versatility inherent to their typically minimalist compositions. This particular example is no exception here, boasting a beautiful ivory field, largely unadorned, giving it that quintessentially vintage Moroccan feeling. However, the bright splashes of color that occur throughout the piece are rather unique, making this carpet a true one-of-a-kind work. In addition to the bands of red detail work, which are especially present at the upper and lower extremes of the rug in an eccentric checkerboard pattern, small flecks of light blue and black also occur, imbuing the rug with further abstract qualities. Contrasting tones arranged in an idiosyncratic manner across an exceptional ivory field make this Moroccan rug an especially intriguing composition.
