Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – This exciting vintage rug — an exceptional vintage piece made in Morocco at the peak production period for this sort of rug, right in the middle of the twentieth century — is a fantastic example of the artistic possibilities explored by the rug makers of mid-century Morocco. This minimalist rug is decorated with a restrained latticework grid that creates an abstract allover pattern with strong geometric lines. The muted beige background is sharply contrasted by the bold fleecy brown details that frame the field. Compartments decorated with abstract roundels and partial lines, which cross the field before abruptly stopping, add to the abstract aesthetic of this modern rug. And indeed, it is the quality of modernism that one really takes away from this beautiful piece, which is a testament to the new avenues of aesthetic possibilities that were being explored during the middle of the twentieth century.
