This is the finest war rug warrug.com has seen. It is very finely knotted with excellent wool spun in very fine threads. It has two expertly done repairs, and two discolored areas. Skirts are unique, and beautiful.
This rug poses a conundrum, because the mosque's single dome, styles of minarets, two rows of arches, and gold color all suggest the Shrine of Imam Reza in Mashad rather than the more familiar Friday Mosque in Herat. On the other hand, beside the dome fly Afghan flags. This may be an example of the much speculated upon Afghan Turkmen rug woven by exiles in Iran (O'Calligan).
