Overall measurements: 117cm across the top, 118cm across the bottom, 181cm the left hand side, 188cm the right hand side.
Pile generally evenly low 1mm with band of wear and some later re-piling across the mihrab as visible from the illustration. End running vine guards rebuilt at both ends. Later sidecords. Partially restored outermost ivory guardstripes. Would possibly benefit from a professional clean. An attractive example of the type with good spacing in the motifs.
