Hello Jeannie,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, knot density and the colours,
I concluded that this is a pair of Machine Made Persian Style Rug probably made in United States. Likely from 1990's. As you observe the knots ont he back you see the perfectly knotted one style knotting system, this is never the case in hand-knotted Oriental or Persian Rugs. Also if you pay attention the design and the motifs on the piece is extremely symmetrical, normally artists aim to achieve the symmetry but since hand knotting is a form of art of course the wavers make mistakes and therefore the piece can not be perfectly symmetrical nor the motifs can be exactly the same.

In this piece you can easily get that the fringes were attached to the rug body with an extra weaving process, Normally in the case of hand-knotted pieces, the fringes are not added but rather are a extension of the pile. So fringes should not be a seperate item attached to the piece, this helps us understaand thaat your piece is machine made. Also a pair this large is very rare and precious in hand-knotted carpet market but pay attention that they seem too very identical to be hand knotted. They seem in a fine condition, very decorative.

Machine made pair of rugs in Persian style.

Dimensions: 9 Feet by 11 Feet
