Please comment on this rug's condition
correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is an antique senneh. It is very thin, stiffer handle due to tight weave and course back.
Is it just a worn old rug, or an average very old senneh with it's subtle colors

I NEED SOME HELP AND I WOULD CERTAINLY APPRACIATE IT.


thanks

You could be right as senneh and hamadan are single wefted but the senneh is single weft Turkish knot.
Also don't think hamadan would be this thin or fine or tightly knotted.

But I could be wrong and appreciate your thoughts

Hi,
Hamadan are single wefted Turkish knot also, but
Senna's have a tight, twisted, bumpy knot, and the back lends itself to a rough, sand paperish feel. Can't tell from the resolution of pic. If this is true.

The condition for its age does not seem to be bad. I think it is at least 100 years old. I believe it needs washing and once washed the colours will really come out. Its a very nice piece and I think it is a Bibikabad from the Hamedan area.
