Freeman's Comments: Most of rug has full pile; there are some areas with visible wear, mostly in parts of center medallion. Ends/sides are intact, rug is pliable, not brittle.
Rug Rag Comments: Such a pretty and classic design. Freemans overstated the condition of this piece, and I believe over inflated the estimate. I would have put this carpet in the $500-700 range. The condition was not as nice as print would have you think. The wear was uneven, and the center around the medallion was showing significant amount of knot heads. No foundation, but definitely very, very low areas. See photos below.
