The photograph in the catalogue is upside down in relation to the direction of the weave. Generally even two millimeter pile overall. Slightly lower pile centre top of field (when looking at photograph in the catalogue). Small re-weaves especially in lower border (when looking at photograph in the catalogue), see difference of colour in blue outer guard. Original flat weave and knotted fringing at both ends. The lighter colour across the width in the lower section of photograph of carpet is abrash and therefore lighter colour blue in reality. Would benefit from a clean. Good size, harmonious colours overall. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
