This oriental rug was purchased by my mother in the mid 1980's from a reputable rug reseller named Kaoud Bros in Wilton, CT. The size of the rug is 12 feet long x 8.5" feet wide. I do not know what my mother paid for this but knowing her....it was not cheap! She always paid a fair premium for high quality that would last a long time. This rug has been in my family for 35+ years.
See my previous remarks. What I don't know is where did Kaoud Bros. purchase this rug. There were then as they are now a reputable family and company who continues to do well with specialty rugs.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Kaoud Bros is still considered a reputable rug dealer; they have been known to buy rugs back so if you are interested in selling this it may be worth it to see if they want to buy it back...
This looks like it's a Heriz but the one photo that shows the majority of the rug still omits parts of the rug; is it possible to take (and attach) a photo that shows the rug in its entirety, including as many edges as possible?
Many thanks in advance,
