Hi, this rug appeared in a local craigslist describing it as a 1900 Sarouk Hali rug. The rug looked beautiful on the small pictures on Craigslist, so I asked the seller to provide better pictures and I'm glad I asked before driving over to see the rug. It seems to me this is a typical 1930s painted Sarouk with one end not secured and a splotchy paint job. What do you think? Also, what is a Sarouk Hali?

Your guess is correct, but it does not look bad (except the painiting). The loose end is no problem, and the overall condition seems to be quite ok. Hali is the turkish word for rug. It gave the name for the HALI magazine: http://www.hali.com/. There is a quite interesting article about the new world record in rug prices: An antique Kirman sold for 9.500.000 USD. at Christies on April 15th 2010 - always worth to take a look.
