Vintage Spanish Rug BB2726
Vintage Spanish Rug Description:
A mid 20th century Spanish area rug, the gray field with a blue angular vinery trellis overall within a similar gray abstract vinery and vase border.
Retaining the idiosyncratic structure of the Spanish knot, early Hispano-Moresque rug weavers employed the method of a single-warp knot in their vintage style rugs. 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 style area rugs. 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 rugs nyc to compete with the sophisticated French workshops of Aubusson and Savonnerie.
