|Rug has wear appropriate for it's age. Pile is 3mm long in worn areas which are mostly in middle of rug. One can see light one knot spots on rug which are where warp or weft strings tied. The light blue seen in the MiG at center is faded more than other colors from cobalt blue to soft cerulean. Fringe excellent. The bright reds and blues are very exciting.
An interesting colorful mosaic of weapons, jets, helicopters, grenades, and other war motifs. Border is very similar to the imagery in the field, but separated by a brown guard stripe.
The design of the fighter jets in the center is unusual and unique for this rug. The way that the trucks are stacked in the border is also unusual. The rectangular shapes in the helicopters is very realistic. This all suggests that this is an early rug.
