Unique Spanish  Rug with Horses

In its general arrangement, this rug clearly follows Persian models. Its palette and style of ‘drawing’, however, indicate that it is not of Persian origin. It is, in fact, Spanish, and although not signed, may be from the Royal Carpet Manufactory in Madrid. Such rugs are normally of large size, though as can be seen in this rug is of unusual rare small size. The history of carpet weaving in Spain has a long and very distinguished history, having probably been introduced by the Moors in the 8th century.

This piece was handwoven in Spain. For further information please contact us and our team will be pleased to assist you. All pieces in the collection are under the auspices of Essie Sakhai, one of the world’s foremost experts and collectors of fine handmade Persian rugs and carpets.
