Hi all,

This is a nice looking rug. That said, I am suspicious of the red, which looks like a synthetic to me. Reds are hard to capture correctly with digital cameras, and this seems a bit warm and orange-ish for a madder red.

If so, that would place the rug in the latter 19th to early 20th century.

Regards
