Lovely old small Oriental or Persian rug, technically a half bag, this size most commonly being hand made for use as a saddle or other functional bag. This one is wool on wool, with both the small original label from Iran, and a larger label from Germany. Ther label in German language identifies this as a rub from Iran of 100% wool. During the Iran embargo, this was how a lot of Persian rugs came to America, via sellers in Germany, hence the German label from the importer. This is a thick rug, typical of the bags also, with substantial pile and in very good condition. We love these old tribal rugs, unusual colors and designs, great for decorating, a must for collectors; and this is a nice size for use as a prayer rug as well. It measures approximately 30" by 30" including the fringe. It is strong but also soft to the touch, and no smoke or other unusual aromas either. Nice tribal rug from the Quashkai or Kashquai region, from our personal collection.
