Description

A highly decorative antique Cuenca Spanish rug lovely European flowing scroll design and a very soft palette.  Woven with wool rather than piled they are knotted in staggered stages. Handwoven in the city of Cuenca, between Madrid and Valencia, especially in the 17th and 18th centuries but also more recently as is this early 20th century example.
With both Persian and European styles they are beautiful decorative carpets with subtle designs and tones. This rug has delicate scrolling vines in ivory, muted pale blues, soft yellows and berry reds.  The condition is excellent with a soft medium high wool pile all over.  A very light decorative Spanish rug in a hard to find small size and natural pale colours.
Set in the mountains of east-central Spain lies the City of Cuenca. Sitting east of Madrid it is founded by Moors, it is a historic walled town with steep cobbled streets and medieval castle ruins. Cuenca has been famous for weaving carpets and rugs since the 11th century.
