Hello - There is an ad from a private seller in our "local" for sale network. I'd like to know what type/origin/age etc. is of this rug. It' is approximately 4x6. I haven't seen it in person, yet, and am trying to decide if it is worth a trip to look at it. It's not inexpensive. Thanks for any information!

Its a very good quality Memey Morchkhord. Circa 1960 with very good dyes and the wool appears to be very good.

Thank you! Would I be silly (in either direction!) to offer $2500-3,000 for it? It's 4x6.

I would say you really like the piece.

I think in a shop you will probably find it at around $1500 so a fair private purchase is around $700.

That's very useful! Perhaps the seller likes it a lot as my number is less than what they're asking, lol! Thanks again.
