This is an exceptionally beautiful, larger-sized, Antique oriental rug, known as a MASHAD design. This gorgeous oriental rug was hand-knotted, in Turkey, in the 1930's, making it about 90 years old. This particular MASHAD is a spectacular piece, with a richly detailed and elegant look. It features design detail you just won't find in newer, less labor intensive pieces. The exact size is 12.3x9.6, and it is in excellent condition, with no wear spots, no stains, and a design and pile that are beautifully intact.

This rug has a soft crimson-red colored field, surrounded by an ivory border, (picture framed on both sides with a thin navy border). It was a good deal of ivory detailing to keep the rug looking light. All of this is centered by a spectacular starburst central medallion in multi-colors of: navy blue, with an ivory center and a touch of light persian blue. It was hand knotted of 100% virgin wool, with about 140 knots per sq. inch, and contains about 3.5MM individual knots. It is an impressively designed rug that will enhance any room, in which you place it. It could be used in many style settings, including traditional, contemporary, transitional, or modern. It will add a shot of color and richness, making your room look impressive.

This MASHAD was used to stage a very large city lakes home that has now sold. We used it in the main floor great room, and it visually enriched the whole house. (We take the rugs back after the home sells and sell them for a portion of their cost to reduce the initial staging fee.) It is a unique and special piece that will be impressive in your home. At retail this rug would sell for about $6500-$7500, just $1375 here. Email me to view it. Thanks!
