What does this mean?

Hello Garry,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, knot density and the colours, I concluded that this is an Entirely Hand Knotted Persian-Indo style piece likely knotted in a private weaving atelier in Kuwait. Piece dates back to the year 2007. Kuwait does not have a perminant tradition of hand knotted carpets, at least as we know it as Oriental Rugs. Therefore the rugs bought in Kuwait is either made in a few ateliers in Kuwait or imported from Pakistan-India. The piece is for sure not made in Iran. The piece's colour palette is very different from persian Rugs and resemble more of a Pakistani style, but when we observe the sewing on the edges we can clearly say that this piece was most probably made in Kuwait. The piece has a cenral decoration, therefore a central medallion. The central medallion and the rest of the pattern was decorated florally. The central are was decorated on a Light Khaki Colour while teh borders were decorated on a shiny brown colour. The wool used on the piece was probably treated with certain chemicals to obtain a silk line shiny look. The piece was knotted wool on coton and the knot density of the piece is average. The motifs are rendered somewhat with a pixel like appearance. Usually not sought after in marekt due to colour palette and style. The piece is in good condition without visible problems.

Entirely hand knotted.

Dimensions: Unknown.

Condition: The piece is in good condition without visible problems.

Provenance: Purchased from kuwait 15 years ago by the current owner.
