Vintage Moroccan Rug BB5133
Vintage Moroccan Rug Description:
Moroccan carpets and moroccan area rugs are widely known to feature creatively brash but masterful design schemes. This vintage rug features artistically style condensed and irregularly shaped checkered block shapes. Moroccan carpet patterns like this are not beholden to the usual tapestry arrangement grid of field, medallion, corner brackets and borders.
The irregular checkered block patterns displayed here sport a homely and embroidered looking visual countenance. The top and middle portions of the rug for sale features alternating layers of irregular checkered blocks in colors of tan, yellow, lavender, green, light green, blue and orange. In the bottom third potion of the antique rug, the irregular shaped checkered blocks transition into much thinner bands. The bottom border of this vintage carpet features a decoration of fabric fringes. The color contrast of alternating layers and checkered blocks is visually striking.
