I inherited a Persian rug but am a bit wary of local dealers so I thought I would ask for some assistance in identifying it and placing a value. Measures around 40" X 60" -the pile is very short, is wool on cotton, vegetal dyes, I believe. The knots are quite small and close together.
Photos attached. Let me know if there is other info needed.
Thank you for looking,
Chani

Looks like an old Bijar.

please take a look at the images necessary for forum posting. I think you need a selvage photo and fringe going into the rug from the reverse side of the carpet

The fringe ends were rather ragged and so were secured with a whip-stitch some time ago by a conservator.

OK now I'm on board with the shots needed to properly look at this piece. Knot shot and pile shot attached. Thanks for your patience :)

at first this looked like a possibility of farahan sarouk around 1910. but now seeing it closer there is something that doesnt quite look right about the knotting and colors for this. I think this is one of those pieces that should be seen in person.
