This impressive oriental rug is a rich and elegantly designed persian rug. It was knotted by hand in the city of MASHAD, Iran in the 1930's. Because it was hand-knotted in Iran, that makes it an "authentic Persian" oriental rug, the very best kind known for quality in design, colors, materials and construction (IE weave). Since one of our Lake Minnetonka staged homes, has recently sold, this fantastic oriental rug is now available for sale. (We take the rugs back after the staged house sells and sell them for a portion of their cost, so we can charge less in the staging fee.) This MASHAD is a high quality, hand-knotted oriental rug, that is in outstanding/excellent condition. It features a rich-looking and exceptional design with high quality construction. It is made of 100% wool colored with vegetable dyes (important because Colors that are vegetable-dyed are richer, and deeper-looking in appearance, than chemical-dyed woolen yarns, as well as environmentally safer). The rug size is 12.6x9.7, and it has a very traditional-looking and elegant design that can be used to make virtually any setting look impressive, while still fitting in with the decorative tone surrounding it. It features a wine red-colored field with accent colors including: navy, medium blue, fawn brown, crimson red, light blue, forest green, creme, golden brown, ivory, rose, ochre, and persimmon. It has a large central medallion with a persimmon center. Very unique looking and visually impactful. This rug has colorful cartouche designs over the entirety of the piece. This is a visually impressive piece, with substantial richness to it, with a traditional design that can be used in many ways. This rug is plush, and features 160 KPSI (knots per square inch), which is considered to be very high quality, and took about 3800 hours of labor to hand knot this piece by hand, to construct it. It is of excellent quality, consistent with what you would expect in a higher-end Persian Oriental rug. This rug was chosen for its beautiful and impressive design. It would be fantastic in a larger-sized living room, a dining room, a family room, a study/library/office, or even in a master bedroom. Because it's design is classic and highly elegant, it would work best in a traditional home, although it could also be an outstanding "art piece" adding great visual color to a minimalist/modern home as well. So this is a piece that could be used in many ways. This rug is one of several rugs I am selling that were used to stage a very upper bracket home for sale, which has recently sold, which is why this is now available. This is a great deal for someone who wants a fantastic rug that will "make" their room. At retail this rug would start at about $7500; But, here it is JUST $1275, but cash only, please. This is truly a spectacular and wonderful piece. Email me here, or use the cell phone above to contact me to view it. Thanks.
