"Vintage Persian rug in beautiful condition" - With certificate - Second half previous century - approx. 200,000 knots per m² - hand-knotted.

Material: Wool on wool
Manufacturing period: 1950-1999
Country: Afghanistan
Condition: Overall in good condition with traces of ageing and usage

This is a hand-knotted Afghan rug, made of natural, durable materials.
The way it is knotted and the diversity in patterns make this carpet unique and emphasise its authentic and artisanal character.

Afghanistan is located east of Iran and also borders Turkmenistan and Pakistan.
Afghan rugs have patterns in the shape of elephant's feet, 'Göls', or octagons (8 sides), often surrounded by angular flowers in dark blue or anthracite.

Afghan carpets are durable carpets, made of shining wool, often from goats, on a wool warp (bobbin thread).
They're good carpets for daily use, with high durability.

It is a used carpet, more beautiful and richer in character due to the natural ageing process.

Main colour: Red

Accent colours: blue.

Particulars: bright colours, rich abrash (natural colour differences).

Signs of wear: fringe damage; worn spots.

Please have a look at the photos to form your own assessment.

This lot will be shipped by registered post with track & trace.
