Floral Medallions with Blue Accents
Stinger missile (rare motif)
This floral medallion rug features a string of two gold, blue, and purple geometric flower-shaped medallions connected by some leafy shapes in the center. The negative space is filled with smaller weapons, namely the bright blue and red Stinger missiles, a rare motif in these rugs. The abstracted helicopters sit in the corner of each medallion.
The bright blue and red accents contrast with the earthy browns, purples, and greens of the rest of the rug.
Buff Field Flower Medallion Helicopter War Rug
This rug is subtle and fascinating. The colors are understated while the pattern keeps your eyes moving across the entire piece. The border is classic and solid, yet the center imagery is a bit more unusual and frenetic. The simple helicopters are common to this style of rug. What is unusual are the little planes sprinkled between the choppers and mandala-like floral designs. The rugs shape is imperfect, with one end wider than the other.
1890's Classic Design
This rug is in excellent condition - except, painfully, for several small areas of moth damage. Please see photos and damage is reflected in price.
There are documented examples of this design dating to the first half of the 1980's, and the color, sheen, polish on back all indicate this is a rug of that group.
Two dime-sized and one quarter-sized area of moth damage around the right lower edge of the rug and one small dime-sized area in the top left corner.
Stylized Helicopters War Rug
New condition. The first of these rugs was woven in the 1980's. This is a very good condition example. The colors are simple and complimentary. The design is subtle but unmistakable.

Fair quality, good condition
Light Field Runner with Stylized Helicopters
This is an older war rug in good condition. There is some minor tip fading in the dark blue and a small, dark mark 1inch wide by 9 inches long running diagonally up towards the bottom right helicopter. The weft threads are wool and the back of this rug is brinish-looking. Both of these are consistent with older rugs.
This war rug has the most understated of patterns, with the helicopters blending nicely into the pattern, essentially camouflaging them. This rug has an overall beautiful and light palette. The wool has a smooth and yet slightly sharp feel to it with excellent sheen.
