ANTIQUE - OVER 60+ YEARS OLD. A RARE GOLDEN AFGHAN RUG - HANDWOVEN WITH PURE WOOL WHICH HAS A VERY SILKY FEEL TO THE RUG. THIS RUG HAS NEVER BEEN USED - WAS FORGOTTEN IN A CONTROLLED STORAGE AREA AND IS IN THE EXCELLENT CONDITION AS WHEN IT WAS WOVEN. EVEN THEN IT WAS WAS NOT EASY TO FIND THE GOLDEN AFGHAN RUGS.
I HAVE HEARD IT SAID BUT CANNOT VERIFY THAT THESE RUGS WERE ORIGINALLY THE TRADITIONAL RED BUT A SPECIAL TREATMENT REMOVED THE RED AND LEFT THIS BEAUTIFUL SHIMMERY MELLOW GOLD BACKGROUND AND THE ELEPHANT FOOT DESIGN IN THE CENTER AND THE TRADITIONAL BORDER DESIGN IS A DEEP DARK BROWN. THERE A FEW PALE TOUCHES IN A PALE ORANGISH TONE IN THE DESIGN.
THIS IS DEFINITELY MUSEUM QUALITY IN MINT CONDITION - PRICE NEGOTIABLE.
