This Fabulous Very Rare Antique Afshari Tribal Pile Rug from the Kuchan Region Measures 181cm x 164cm (5ft 11 inches x 5ft 4.5 inches) Has a Hand Spun Wool Pile, Asymmetrically Hand Knotted to Hand Spun Wool Warps and Hand Spun Madder Red Dyed Wool Wefts with One side of the Knot Slightly Indented into the Weave. The Excellent Vegetable Dyes Including a Gorgeous Range Indigo Blue and Blue Green Tones and Beautiful Madder Colours, Stunning Design Layout, Format and Handle are Obvious Proof of a Nomadic Afshari Tribal Origin Over the Period 1890 to 1920. In my opinion based on long experience in Antique Rugs this Super Rare Antique Persian Kuchan Afshari Tribal Rug is in Above Average Condition for its Minimum of 100 Years of Age with some Areas of Lower Pile, Original Selvedges showing areas of Consolidation and signs of its Age at the Warp Ends. It is Ideally Suited to Dealers, Serious Collectors and Museums. We have supplied photos of the entire rug in different light conditions so the colours in the pictures show different tones so look at these to make up your own mind about its condition and colours prior to purchasing. It Offers a Unique Tangible Prime Investment Opportunity to Dealers, Discriminating Decorators and Collectors in these uneasy Times of the Paper Based Financial Market. Many are Over 100 years Old, so they show the signs of this age as rugs are made to walk on. We can not describe every mark of use. We provide a picture of the entire rug and it is up to you to assess its condition from our pictures. A NOTE ON PHOTOS. Try to take photos which reproduce the colours of the rug as close as possible. As is obvious none are taken in a studio and they are a close as we can get them to reality. We have tried to provide a few different tones and extremes but be aware that they will look different in reality as they do in different light conditions. They will still look different when you put them on the floor at home. This is a Genuine Very Rare Antique Afshari Tribal Pile Rug Hand Knotted by a Nomadic Af shar or Afshari if you prefer Tribal Group over the Period 1890 to 1920.
