Vintage Spanish Rug BB6842 13'0" × 19'7" $120,000
Hand-woven by a skilled artist from the best available materials, this Spanish style rug is a beauty incarnate. Exqusitive color palette distinguishes it among others thanks to the depth of the hues. For the central part, the weaver used copper with a bit of navy blue and maroon bringing out the gold undertones. Meanwhile, rug’s frame displays few shades of brown, from the lightest to the darkest. The design itself is a fascinating composition, made of a cog-like shapes with an hourglass in the middle. The outer part consists of several different patterns, which brought together provide a fascinating contrast, while keeping the balance. European elegance and superb quality make this antique carpet a one of a kind piece of art.
