Lot Essay

The knot count is approximately 8V x 9H per cm. sq.

The present rug was inherited by the current consignor from the British novelist and short story writer L.P. Hartley (1895-1972), most famous for his novel 'The Go-Between' written in 1953. The border design of this rug is identical to that of lot 40, the large signed Heriz carpet in the present sale, making it highly probable that both carpets were woven in the same workshop. Both carpets are of a superior quality with unusual cartoons suggesting that they were woven by a master weaver.
