Q&A: Red Living Room Rug seen Online

TemperPedic Mattress Ad, Ivory Rug



Hi, we had one more rug we wanted to ask about other than the white one in the TempurPedic ad.  It's the one that's in this living room.  What do you call this, how old is it and what should I expect to pay?  Sorry!  Thanks so much again.




Hello, no problem our pleasure!

It's somewhat less common to find this type in the smaller square sizes.  This appears to be a Persian "Mahajeran Sarouk," or sometimes spelled  "Mohajeran Sarouk."

When looking online, these are some combinations you may want to try for similar rugs: american sarouk & Lilihan Sarouk.  Some sellers spell Sarouk differently: Sarouk, Sarough, Saruk, Sarook.  The first two are the most common spellings. 

It's appears as though it could be from the first quarter 20th century or thereabout.  As for value, feel free to drop any item by our forum for review.  Prices vary greatly depending on venue, condition, colors, type, and many other factors. 

Best of luck!

For all those interested in submitting a question to the Rug Rag Editors:  We'd be more than happy to help, please send some photographs of the reverse side of the rug very close up with a quarter placed on the knots, plus a picture of the fringe, the whole face of the rug and detail shot of the pile.  If the rug is worn, please include photographs of worn areas.  For rugs of any age, please be sure to check for dry areas, moth damage, odor, and whether or not the rug is straight/has right angles where called for.  If you have any questions about our assessment request feel free to send us an email.  Otherwise, we are looking for something similar to these images posted here
