The condition of this rug is excellent and virtually new despite its age. The rhythmic array of plants drawn in diverse styles creates a beautiful visual rhythm drawing the viewer's eye around the carpet. The designs blends abstract imagery with rhythmic patterning.

The colors are classic Taimani with red, blue, burgundy, and an array of marled colors which give depth to the landscape.

The simply drawn armor arrayed along a road in a column is common in 1980's war rugs.

The architecture in the corners is an interesting accent, and the English characters suggest the rug is from later in the 1980's.

The border features white sumac behind the pile medallions which is called gul-i-birjista.

Slight bleeding of rust color into blue and white marled sky, otherwise condition is excellent.

Pile: Pile is 5 mm, coupled with flat weave around the border. Warp: Natural colored woolWeft: Two cords dark colored wool. Wool wefts are unusual in rugs made after the 1980's .
