NORTH PERSIA, CIRCA LATE 19TH CENTURY. 20 ft. 10 in. x 11 ft. 3 in.
SOLD: $18,000 + 25% Buyers Premium.
Freeman's Comments: The ends are intact, the sides are intact
with minor repairs/unraveling to parts of selvages. Carpet has a
generally even short clip. There are no large areas that are
threadbare. With the short clip, there are numerous places in the
brick field where parts of the warp are visible. In parts of the
brick field, we note some repairs, including an approximate 1 1/2 x 2
in. area in the field just outside the navy medallion. Carpet has
habrash throughout, as visible in catalogue illustration. Carpet is
not brittle or dry rotted. There is repair in the major border at one
end, and a smaller repaired area at/near juncture of major/minor
borders at the same end. On reverse of carpet at one corner, there are
faint stenciled (?) numerals (?) inventory numbers (?) NOT visible on
front of carpet. At the inner red minor border, in one area, there
are two worn areas with exposed foundation. The carpet has a short
clip. Much of the carpet has full pile. There is visible wear in
parts of carpet, predominantly in parts of the brick -colored field.
In these low areas, there may be some tinting.
