Hi Audrey,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This is a beautiful Qum prayer mat, seemingly in good condition; the Persian/oriental rug market is a little soft and there are quite a few examples regularly on the market that keeps the fair-market value fairly low.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A vintage Qum hand-knotten silk prayer mat
Made in Qum, Iran, mid 20th century
In a varied palette, the center with a red ground, blue-ground borders and spandrels, cream selvedges.
24 by 38 inches (2' by 3'2")
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: purchased in Iran and owned by client's family
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
