This is an Egyptian made rug using local wool and synthetic material and dye= to imitate Persian rugs. Note that the left size has been stretched, hence the distorted look. size: 6'-3"x3'-7"
bought from a store who sells locally made rugs in Cairo, Egypt few years ago
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be what you suggested, an egyptian rug based on persian tribal designs. The design of birds and flowers around a central star shaped ornament is very decorative, predominant colours are dark red, ligther shades of red and orange on dark blue surrounded by a flower ornament decorated border. A slight distortion is not necesarrily a disadvantage, it is proof of a hand crafted rug. The estimate is based on similar sold or offered at auction.
