Sophisticated Antique Rug | Moody European Sized Lattice Fence Design Antique Rug | 4.4 x 7.9
Size: 4.4 x 7.9
Pile: Low with one antique repair
About: An incredible piece woven ever so finely with sensational abrash all wrapped up in a nice European size that was probably woven for those narrow abodes and smaller spaces in that region of the world. After all, these genuinely old pieces were woven for that market, and it wasn't until around the 1920s the Americas started to catch on and become infatuated with this mystical art form. This piece reminds me of looking into the dark sky seeing the fascinating stars sparkling in the sky. This darker backdrop allows the beige flora and palmettes to dance as the stars do. The abrash in this rug is really special - it has bands of dark blues in the smokey charcoal-like indigo, and the slate and teals are a perfect counterbalance to the warmer reds and earthy hues that decorate the details of this piece. Lovely border to frame it all with movement and the dirty camel grounds it very nicely. There is one ancient repair that is hardly noticeable and just another character-rich story to an already soulful and moody piece with an appreciation for the sophistication these artists had to create such a spectacle! You will LOVE this piece, as it's a versatile size and perfect for an entryway, bedrooms, smaller living spaces, larger kitchens, offices, laundry rooms, nurseries, and even studios!
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
