I have been a collector of tribal hand mage rugs for years, but have only seen some fairly paltry gabbehs. This one looks very expensive, and while traditionally rural persian, it looks quite contemporary.The quality is absolutely outstanding for a tribal carpet. The middle design is hand woven and nicely done and the wool is quite heavy, not fine like formal decorative persians, but wonderful for a conteporary artful home. The red is muted enough so t is not overwhelming. I am using it in a newly done kitchen eating area and it fits a round table 44 inches, and 4 chairs, turned ont he diagonal so that the chairs pull out to the corners. Matched withthe natural cherry cabinets it i just perfect. I could ot be more pleased. (It weighs a ton!) Remember these are tribal carpets, so there is always some v ariance in them as they ar all hand made.
