Hello All,
Need help identifying my rugs. Have two close to identical 12'-7" x 13'-8" rugs which I believe are +75 years of age. They were in an historical home I purchased years ago. Any help in type and approximate value would be greatly appreciated. I think they are hand-woven but I am a total novice at all of this.
Thank you in advance
Richard

I think these are Karastan. In my opinion this is one of the better designs they made.

Thanks so much for the reply!
Would these be hand knotted? Any idea of approximate age and value?
thanks again

Thank You again Rugpro
You were spot on! The "Karastan is all I Needed to find it. it is AMERICAN KARASTAN ISPAHAN #766.
Now I wish I could age it. The Tag on the one is 4366 and that's all I have. These things weigh a ton and guessing about 250 lbs each.
I am moving and would be great to find a new home for these twins.
really not sure what the value would be though.
Thank you so much for getting me this far!
Richard
