  This circa 1875 Melez or Melas Oriental carpet measures 3 ‘11” x 5’ 7”. The prayer niche is in medium green.  The spandrels are in Mediterranean blue.  It has a stylized tree of life going up the field surrounded by a wave design.  I have no idea how to describe the borders.  Describe them to yourself, it will be more fun.  The dyes are very nice, of course, all vegetable.  The background is mainly a very mellow rust color with a very mottled aubergine.  The ends and sides are complete.  The rug is 99% full pile.  It is clean and ready to go.  The buyer pays the shipping of $75.00.
