A 1920s Karaja rug from north west Persia.
The terracotta field has the characteristic three medallion design in pale and dark blue, surrounded by floral and geometric motifs. Dark blue palmette and floral main border; pale blue and ivory guards.
Overall even wear, heavier in places; some corrosion to dark browns; minor loss to ends and edges.
In good condition for its age with the wear and slight wonkiness which show this to be a genuine antique.
