One of the finest Hereke silk rugs that you will see.
Generally, rugs of this caliber (over 1,250,000 knots per square meter) are considered to be amongst the highest of investment quality.
Measuring 5'1" by 3'1", this stunning rug would look beautiful in any room, whether on the floor or mounted to hang on a wall.
This rug was appraised at just under $10,000 and you will find rugs of this quality for sale for over $13,000 in Vancouver.
Design: Hereke Handmade carpet Colour: Cream base with Red and Green combinations Fiber Content: 100% Silk (800-850 kpsi) Dyes: Vegetable dyes Country of Origin: Turkey Quality: Fine Handmade Circa 1990's 2000' (NOTE: I bought it in 2000) Condition: Excellent
This carpet, which contains between 1.8 and 1.92 million knots, would have taken a master weaver a year, working 6 days per week, to make. That excludes dye and setup time.
The photos don't do this rug justice.
Let me know if you have any questions.
I will meet any potential purchaser at a bank, for our mutual security.
