Private estate in Scotland.

Object Condition

Condition wise it is very good, with only small areas of lower pile in places but in general the pile is high and durable.  No repairs to the end/fringes or sides which are all original.  The dyes have faded considerably over the last 100 plus years, giving this carpet a wonderful palette.  Please look at the 11 additional images we have added to this new listing.  All our photography tries to represent the true nature and colours of a carpet using no flash photography and natural light.
