And now, the rest of the story....
The label was tucked under a piece of furniture so it wasn't readily available. Still picked it up for $90. It's in very good shape, just not a collector. Pretty heavy pile and will wear ok in daily traffic. You can buy a similar one new on their web site for $414.

It seems to be a crude Indian copy of a Persian Heriz. They should have really labelled it as an Indian carpet but one of the unfortunate things that happen in this business. You haven't paid a lot for it but the second hand that would be the price. Just in case you are interested the second hand of the original Heriz would have been upwards of $400 in an auction if you are lucky.

As always, thank you for your sage insight. I was certain it was a knock off the minute a saw it in person. The original ask was $595. When I found the label and showed them I offered $50. I agreed to $90. It's a usable addition to my game room and now my pool table sits on.

Cheers

Andy
