Antique Spanish carpet, circa 1900The production of carpets in Europe first began in Spain under Moorish rule in the fourteenth century, and it has continued unbroken up to the present. But while most antique Spanish carpets from the Renaissance onward evolved in a distinctive yet European idiom, this rare and outstanding example preserves the design of the earliest Spanish carpets, with rows of geometric medallions connected ornamental tracery. The interlacing "Kufic" border is strikingly authentic and beautiful. But the soft saffron and apricot coloration makes the carpet eminently well suited to contemporary decor.
