This mesmerizing pattern is perfectly executed in the smallest details which could have been achieved only with the high knot density. There is no doubt this vintage deco antique rug is a piece of an exquisite quality and a timeless format . A sharp connoisseur’s eye will surely notice and appreciate it.
