8'4" x 12'8" genuine and clean vintage rug completely hand knotted with fine purpose bred sheep wool and vegetable dyes (early 1900s estimate). Very good overall condition for the age. Beautiful and colorful antique of a bygone era.Red spectrum field tones with myriad accents from blue green and earth tones light and dark. Double tied knots upon two foundations, millions of hand tied knots overall. No stains, animal or smoke.
Natural organic dyes oxidize over the century giving a beautiful affect of lighter or darker shades of red or blue tone, called'abrash' by curators and collectors. Dye methods unmatched even today. Dyes from pomegranate, beet, madder root, indigo, lilac, hyacinth, larkspur, weld and many more. Some very limited antique wear or low pile over the century, overall excellent and charming as you can see.
