A beautiful antique low pile Caucasian Shirvan rug in lovely shades of salmon, green, and orange, measuring approximately 76" long by 39.5" wide (6'4" X 3'3.5").  We do not know the maker and we do not know the precise age.  It is in good condition overall, though there is some wear and tear commensurate with age and use.  When held up to sunlight, there are several small areas where the rug has worn threadbare and you can see through (this is hardly noticeable when the rug is on a floor or similar surface).  We would not say these are holes, but just where the weave has loosened and worn over the years.  This item is fresh from the estate of a Virginia antique rug collector.  We have not cleaned or altered it in any way.  While it smells old, there is no particular foul odor detected.  The colors of this rug are very vibrant and beautiful.
