Spain is the oldest European producer of handmade rugs. This piece, produced during the Franco era, shows the influence of silk damask patterns. The vine-like lattices of the field are filled with flower-filled urns surrounded by a very interesting scrolling main border of winged dragons.
The original label attached reads ‘Patrimonia Nacional Patronato de la Fundacion Generalisimo Franco Madrid.’
