Very good antique condition. Low / Medium mostly even wool pile. Fringe has wear on both ends. Selvage is in very good condition. This rug has a very unique color scheme compared to other Tafresh rugs. I have bought and sold many Tafresh rugs featuring this clock-face medallion design and this one is by far the most detailed and unique. Simply stunning to look at!About TAFRESH Persian Rugs Tafresh lies east of the city of Hamadan and is considered a border area of anything recognized as Hamadan made rugs. Tafresh rugs are of excellent quality and design; some of the best in the area. Like Hamadan they are single-wefted but are fairly different in many other aspects. This design features a central medallion known as a clockface medallion. It is both distinctive and mysterious as to what it represents. It is believed to be a zoroastrian symbol of the sun. These designs are well known to be from the village of Tafresh, however copies can be found from India. Tafresh also makes smaller rugs and runners, large carpets are rare. Tafresh rugs are typically very desirable and collectible.
