Condition Report

Pile generally fair, with low pile in bands of darker yellow, probably associated with oxidisation. Wear to foundation in localised areas in motifs in upper border. Repiling to right hand side of upper medallion pendent. End guards rebuilt, side cords reovercast. An unusual example employing motifs from Caucasian models, for example the polychrome interlace rosettes in the border and of course the Kyrdagyd design, whilst the medallion recalls Serapi weavings.
