This is a large colorful antique handmade wool oval braided rug, about 12'7' X 10'3. It was made from wool by hand braiding and hand lacing. It has beautiful multi- colors. The rug was made with medium braids, about 1 wide.
It shows wear as one would expect with an old and used rug; but it is still in good condition without holes, odors. The wrong side shows more wear, it must have had no carpet pad under to protect it (see the last picture of the wrong side of the rug). The red colors near the edge are bleeding some places but they are unnoticeable because they blend in with other colors. Some braids wear with fabric worn down showing different colors inside the braids.
The rug has not been cleaned professionally but it was vacuumed. It has a lot of life left. Please check out all the pictures to see condition of the rug. The item "Vintage Antique Hand Handmade Oval Wool Braided Rug 12'7 X 10'3" is in sale since Sunday, August 27, 2017.
