Overall in very good condition. When viewed in person, the present lot stands out by its combination of abstract patterns and rich coloration. When handled, the rug presents with a supple and clean surface with a stable structure. The woven surfaces with occasional and very minor loose fabric threads consistent with age and use and textural irregularities inherent to production. The fringes are all intact and present with occasional irregularities to the edges, possibly inherent to production. A particularly artistic rug piece by the Swedish textile designer.
