Approximately 9 x12 and seemingly wool- very soft and not scratchy at all. The weft (or the one running opposite the white that becomes the fringe) is unusual to me, looking like a mixed brown wool or natural fiber I’ve seen in Native American jewelry and rugs. It is in colors of a true crimson red (not burgundy as it seems in the pictures), a purple/lilac (not grey like it seems in pictures), yellow, and cream/white. It is not straight along the sides at all and the former owner seemingly folded the fringe underneath at the two ends. It doesn’t look like it was ever taped- I am going to lay it out flat. It is extremely dirty, but easily folds. I have not seen a border completely absent of “lines” like this one. Also the weft and fridge at ends are loosening/unraveling. I know it came out of a very old home for my part of the world, having been built in the 1920-30s.
Bought in a Habitat for Humanity Re-Home store in Denton, Texas adjacent to the University of North Texas.
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal and the excellent description and photos. This appears to be a belgian manufactured, machine woven rug of the early 20th century. Belgium has a long tradition of weaving, especially the tapestry of this region is well known. The rug was made in the early 20th century, inspired by persian designs. The estimate is based on similar items offered or sold at auction.
