This late 19th century. It is quite a beautiful carpet! Two opposite corners are worked in a very pale tobacco, 2 colors of blue and ivory with a floral arrangement coming from a rockery. The other two corners have a floral arrangement beginning in the pale blue border and going into the navy blue field. A very delicately drawn large house is in the center of the rug. The major border is a medium blue floral motif going in and out of the border into the field. Except for the minor ivory border which is showing some corrosion because of the age, the rug is full pile using very finely spun wools. The ends and sides are complete. The rug is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping which includes insurance of $125.00.
