condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: antique tribal Kars Rug
model name / number: handknotted
size / dimensions: 7' x 10'
This unique, beautiful and vivid rug is just over 7'x10' and has been used very lightly! It is very thick and beautifully made. It is all wool, handknotted and a choice example, appraiser said sit was made in the 1800s. I bought it at auction in 1990. There is one very simple small repair possible that will increase its value. It is a little dusty, but has absolutely no animal hair or stains, etc. I just had it appraised and this is a very good price. I am needing to move on.

(Information on Kars rugs: Kars and surrounding areas in the far northeast corner of Turkey, approximately 45 miles from the border of Armenia. The weaving of rugs has been a tradition in the area from as early as the 16th century.
The word ‘Kars’ comes from the name of the Turkish/Bulgarian tribe of ‘Karzak’ living in the area since 130 AD.)
