This is an Antique Palace Size Kashan Rug from the late 1800's.
This is a great rug that has a great weave and is in very good condition.
The rug is more or less complete with nothing missing to the ends or the sides. There is some minor wear on the edge of the sides of the rug. (See Pictures)
We are going to loop wool around these parts and the rug will look much nicer.
This rug is made with Manchester Wool which is the best wool that rugs can be made from.
This rug has a beautiful blue abrash and this is the process of antique die becoming more mellow/lighter over the years.
Most people like this color change and also the pattern it makes on the rug.
Also, this rug is not worn out like most palace size rugs from this time period and it can be used for many years to come.
We shampoo all of our rugs and we do it the same way for the cheap ones as we do the expensive ones. We do not include these cost in the price, but sometimes the buyer thinks the rugs are not clean. Most dealers that sell rugs will tell you to have it cleaned when you receive it, but we clean our rugs before they are shipped. If you think that the rug smells or needs to be cleaned when you receive it you will need to send it to a rug cleaner in your area.
Border Color: Rust
Other Colors: Different Shades of Blue, Gold, Salmon/ Pink, and Brown

IN CASE YOU NEED MORE INFO PLEASE CALL 570 743 1335. NOTE:
We sell original rugs from estates in central Pennsylvania. Rug dealers in large cities buy rugs from us and then resell our rugs at much higher prices. You can get the same rug for less by buying directly from us. Moreover, you need to be careful when buying rugs online. Other large rug dealers lie about their rugs by pretending that their rugs are antique even though their rugs are new. These dealers chemically wash their new rugs with lead which makes the rugs look older. These rugs are not as valuable as real antique rugs. Worse, the lead used in the wash is unhealthy to breathe, especially for small children.
We are happy to help you look for rugs from any dealer. Feel free to ask us for help even if you end up buying a rug from someone else.
