Vintage Moroccan Rug BB4829
Vintage Moroccan Rug Description:
A modern antique rug from Morocco that features a simple design with an ivory field beneath an enlarged "I-shaped" form in brown within a brown border.
Moroccan style area rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, vintage area rugs were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental area rug on the floor.
