This is an older rug in perfect condition. Check out the skirts and kilim ends. White floral medallions with bright colored centers are beautiful. The geometric design rendered by the white diagonal lines emanating from the three medallions is beautiful and rare.
Bright rich green stands out against the navy background. Marled minty and sky blue accents throughout. Small neon pink knot in areas.
