Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – This sophisticated mid-century vintage rug from Morocco features a plush ecru field that is precisely divided into narrow horizontal segments. Quirky lozenges and dramatic X-shaped motifs formed by individual checkers cross the field in individual rows. These distinctive geometric symbols highlight the broad background with its soft white pile and plush ribbed texture. This masterful Moroccan rug embodies a remarkable level of formality, precision and planning that is used to great effect. Sophisticated rows of familiar motifs divide the field into beautifully proportioned segments that diminish the expansive length and enhance the clever composition. Like many regional carpets, this vintage mid-century rug uses a small number of repeated motifs to the greatest effect.
