Expert Notes


100% authentic hand knotted carpet. We believe this may be a Tabriz rug from Iran, age approximately mid 20th century. Field is a repeat Herati or "Mahi" pattern with medallion. Border features an informal "turtle" design element with animal busts stemming from the main body of a flower print. The rug has a signature cartouche framed in a dark outline, with ivory ground and darker inscription/writing. A few select areas appear to possibly show some lower pile, Overall appears to be fairly even: check with seller or inspect in person for details. Very attractive field grounded with excellent design execution per medallion. Accents of spandrels in each corner of the main field are fluid. Border shows slight shift from "center", with merging border designs in corners. This does not significantly affect value: only alludes to a less formal production. One end appears to have been overcasted to prevent loss of knots. No full shot of entire rug available, inspect rug in person for evenly aligned sides and 90 degree corners or additional buyer criteria
