SOLD

A very unusual and hard to find antique low pile Persian Sarouk rug measuring approximately 81" (6'9") long by 60.5" (5'1/2") wide (please note that the length is a couple inches shorter near the center of the rug where there has experienced more loss to the border).  It is quite worn throughout, in the middle and around the area of the borders and to the edges (please see photos).  The colors are very worn in some areas, and the rug is threadbare in several areas.  There is loss to the border on all four edges, but particularly on the two shorter ends.  We can only find one small hole, but it doesn't go all the way through.  Dates to the late 19th - early 20th century.  This item is fresh from the estate of a Virginia antique rug collector.  We had this rug professionally cleaned before listing it, but we did not have any other work done on it.
