Beautiful Vintage Moroccan Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Here is an exciting and spirited vintage rug – a vintage Moroccan carpet, woven in that country during the middle decades of the twentieth century. Generally speaking, vintage Moroccan rugs and carpets – especially mid-century Moroccan rugs and carpets – are among the more desirable examples on the market today. These carpets are often characterized by straightforward compositions, which will often feature ivory fields and dark brown line work. These characteristics are especially prevalent in Beni Ourain Moroccan rugs. Meanwhile, other examples tend to express more tribal design aesthetics, often featuring eccentric and idiosyncratic geometric figures, laid out in an unpredictable and exciting manner. This particular example is a wonderful example of this latter tendency, being characterized by beautifully woven rectilinear figures, arranged along the vertical in a diagonal pattern. Greens, browns, blacks and yellows are combined in an intriguing manner throughout the carpet, infusing it with a great deal of energy and vitality.
