Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Vintage carpets often boast design elements local to the region where they are woven. Created in Morocco during the middle part of the 20th century, this splendid vintage Moroccan rug features a variety of bold geometric motifs and ancient symbols. Crisscrossing latticework motifs, stacked lozenges, inset diamonds and checkered goz symbols are juxtaposed against a series of formal berekets decorated with branching appendages. Checkered stoppers break the field into distinct compartments that are embellished with ancient protection symbols and geometric motifs. The bold symbols are put in stark contrast by the plush ivory-colored field, which features overlapping rows of ribbed pile. Zigzagging running water motifs with angular contours line the edges of the field creating a minimalist border that complements the abstract composition of this beautiful mid-century modern vintage Moroccan rug.
