    I think it would be better to tell if the carpet is here and there repeared. Also, I do not agree with the given 50's-60's time line; I did not believe it, when I made my offer. Nice heriz though.

    Rug arrived well-packed, but size and perimeter was really irregular (not mentioned in the description of the item) and, furthermore, it was EXTREMELY DIRTY: a professional wash has been needed!!!

    Leider ist nach einen Bombenalarm bei UPS das Paket abhanden gekommen! Habe den Käufer hierüber mehrmals per mail und telefonisch informiert aber hat leider hierfür kein Verständnis ..... was ich auch verstehen kann! Einen Negative Bewertung war unnötig weil ich nichts dafür kann!
