""Given how long we have had this rug you would never know, but this is one of *the very nicest*"" says owner Kevin Sudeith.
The six white tanks with blue and maroon text form rows down the rug, while the table at the top and bottom with two golden ewers is spanned by the flowery motif sprouting from the vases on either table. Text is seen throughout the rug, below the tanks as well as in the tables and throughout the border.
The border is elaborate and features many war motifs including tanks, rifles, helicopters, and others. The colors in this rug are bright and rich.
