This old rug has some wear to show for her many years! See photos and closeups. The edges have a few tears and most of the pile is worn down. There are some small holes (see video). Along one edge (see video) is a bit of adhesive residue from a past repair. Note: This area can be patched and the holes and edges can be professionally mended for an additional fee. Please reach out if you’re interested and I can go into more detail! This worn piece is an opportunity to have a oversized piece in your collection at a lower price point than a piece with less wear. A rug of this size, in pristine condition would cost 3x more in the current market. The width on this piece is especially rare and likely means it was created for a person or family of nobility. Rugs over 12’ wide are a special find! Most looms at this time were not built for making rugs that wide - even in larger cities.
