Pile varies from 3mm in parts of the border to areas of wear to knotbars and foundation in areas of the field, visible from the photograph.

Original end finishes with vestiges of fringing, visible from photo. Sidecords mainly missing original wrapping on right hand side, partial losses on left hand side. Needs satbilising.
