|Of all the older war rugs we have offered recently, this is one of the nicest. This war rug is in perfect condition and it is nicely aged with very good sheen and beautiful oxidation of the color. The back has a burnished, shiny look, typical of older war rugs. |
The particular olive green in many war rugs, including this one, appears more olive green at the tips and a brighter green closer to the knots.
The color palate of this war rug is very nice. None of the colors are too bright, and all the colors are muted: burnt umber, raw sienna, dusty rose is the brightest.
The pile is very even and consistent. The beautiful abrash appears more pronounced in the pictures than in real life.
