Among the oldest rugs in the collection - possibly early - mid 1800s
The pile is almost completely worn out - but the back is a total delight!
So it is slated to hang on the wall with the back displayed.
More photos soon after having it mounted
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
