This late 19th century Quashki measures 4’3” X 5’6”. It has two ivory center medallions with a lazy ‘S’ border and in an unnamable motif in the center of each with each being a little different. These are on a tomato red ground filled with tiny flowers. The whole situation is resting on the center of a blue field covered in botehs and tiny flowers. The major border consists of a motif that looks like pairs of small branches with leaves in red, blue and cordovan. Very nicely done and interesting. There are two minor borders. The ends and sides of the rug are complete. There are small inconsistencies in the kilim ends. If I was going to put this rug on my floor I’d ravel one end out and make it even. Some people wouldn’t. It’s a matter of taste. The rug has evenly low pile. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $75.00.
