Hello again!

I'm trying to learn more about this rug--identification, age, value, as well as info on the technique and symbols. Any help would be appreciated.

Size: 6'6" x 3'4"

My best guess (which could very well be incorrect) is that is is a Malayer. This guess is based on the pattern and the colors--deep navy blue field and secondary tones: sage green, watermelon, salmon, and gold.

Some background on our batch of rugs:
We recently received several antique Persian rugs from my bf's family. The rugs were purchased in Iran by my bf's grandfather who had a rug business in Wisconsin. According to his dad, they are over 100 years old.

I am including some pictures. Please forgive the poor lighting. Any info is appreciated!

Thank you!

I think its a Khamseh from Zanjan area with interesting colour.It is about 80 years old but not in very good condition which detracts from its value greatly.
