Vintage Spanish Rug, Country of Origin: Spain, Circa Date: 2nd Quarter of the 20th Century – This majestic vintage Spanish rug features a superb repeating pattern with flourishing botanical decorations and baroque influences that are uniquely European. The lavish alabaster field is adorned with a fluid pattern of interwoven vine scroll trellises that have a monumental large-scale form. Arching acanthus leaves and flourishing tendrils meander around the field, defining latticework compartments and a series of golden-yellow chalices filled with handsome pineapples and decorative blossoms. The emphasis on European crewelwork designs shines through in the glamorous neoclassical decorations and the classically Spanish color palette, which favors clear, pure heraldic tones. Understated main borders featuring reciprocating shrubs with pendulous pineapple-like fruits complement the sensuous acanthus leaves and the thematic designs featured within the field. The curvaceous lines and contours enhance the lavish curvilinear decorations and bring out the historic European textile patterns that are re-imagined in this stunning antique Spanish carpet. It is in excellent condition, with good & soft pile throughout so it could take daily traffic and use with absolutely no problem.
