Beautiful rug in excellent condition, very valuable

Material: Wool on cotton
Manufacturing period: Unknown
Country: Iran
Condition: In very good condition

This antique Saruk rug is very elegant and is very well preserved: it is made completely of fleece and has never been restored. They are rugs that were knotted on commission in the Arak district to be exported to America between the late 19th and early 20th century.
Manufacturing technique: hand-knotted, Persian knot, medium to fine, i.e. up to 5,000 knots/dm². Made with very good wool, often with compact and rigid weave as they are knotted in the same manner in shiny wool of the best quality (Kork wool) but with short or very short pile. Generally this type of rugs represent the apex of Persian production, and even the items manufactured for export are highly valuable thanks to their excellent resistance to tears.
Origin: Iran.
Era: antique.
Weft: cotton.
Warp: cotton.
Pile: wool.
Certificate of authenticity.
