Vintage Spanish Carpet BB1050

Price: $48,000

A second quarter 20th century Spanish antique carpet, the sand field with a pale overall design of staggered stylized palmettes and leaves within a linear hooked vinery border.

Retaining the idiosyncratic structure of the Spanish knot, early Hispano-Moresque area rug weavers employed the method of a single-warp knot in their carpets. The original bright red and blue colorations of these antique Spanish rugs have faded over time into the muted gold and blue tones now associated with antique Spanish carpets. Neoclassical and Turkish influenced pieces were made in the workshops of Quenca. In 1712 Charles III founded the Real Fabrica de Tapices Manufactory in Madrid and produced European style vintage rugs to compete with the sophisticated French workshops of Aubusson and Savonnerie.
