General Description: The condition of this new rug is very good. The border is particularly interesting on this rug. The border consists of a mythical winged lion motif. We have seen this particular border design often with this field pattern of the all over fighter jets. The style of this rug would typically be ""Golden Border"" but this rug has a dark border which is unusual.
The rug is well knotted and the back has a corduroy appearance.
The colors are very attractive muted tones.
This war rug is a good example of a traditional all-over approach to Beluchi design, but the war design is unique. The abstract quality of the fighter jets triangular shape understates the war motifs impact.
