Description

A really beautiful Antique Cuenca Spanish carpet with a delicate pale blue, subtle green and pale pink array of dyes.  In excellent pile all over, this early 20th century carpet has been well looked after and has retained its great colours and condition from when it was made.  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.

Cuenca is a city set in the mountains of east-central Spain, east of Madrid it is founded by Moors, it retains its historic walled town with steep cobbled streets and medieval castle ruins. Cuenca has been famous for weaving carpets and rugs since the 11th century.
