Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Impeccably organized, this delightful vintage rug from Morocco features an exemplary selection of regionally important protection symbols arranged in an uncharacteristically formal composition. The beautifully limited color scheme incorporates a high-chroma combination of golden-yellow, lavender purple, celadon and clear white details that are set against a vibrant mulberry-red background. Horizontal bands divided into rectilinear compartments filled with important symbols are juxtaposed against rows of smaller symbolic motifs. The beautifully composed field features geometric stars, an ancient symbol of happiness, burdock motifs with extended burrs and a variety of checkered lozenges and divided polygons used for protection against the evil eye. Symbolic borders comprised of stacked lozenges line the edges of this Moroccan rug while flat-woven ends, which feature the same modern color scheme, bookend the formal field.
