Vintage Spanish Rug BB1161

Price: $40,000

An early 20th century Spanish rug, the cinnamon field with an intricate trellis overall of thick vines, orange curving tendrils and leafy floral motifs within a scrolling leafy vinery border.

Retaining the idiosyncratic structure of the Spanish knot, early Hispano-Moresque rug weavers employed the method of a single-warp knot in their carpets. The original bright red and blue colorations of these antique Spanish Vintage oriental 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 antique oriental rugs to compete with the sophisticated French workshops of Aubusson and Savonnerie.
