Origin: AfghanistanStyle: -Ten Tank War Rugs,
Other examples of this style
Tribe: Baluchi
Very good quality and excellent condition. The border design, color and wool suggests this rug is closely related to classic ""10 Tank"" rugs in spite of difference in field design. The more brighly colored field images: red tanks, green tanks, red fighters give this rug a refreshing brilliance uncommon in ""10 Tank"" rugs. Blue wool is good quality as is blue dye.

The three columns of skinny images on each side and center of field are fighter jets, which have suffered what Nigel Nendon calls ""progressive abstraction"". Example, examle.
Wool: The wool in this war rug is good quality. Sheen: Uncommonly shiny for new rug. Handle: Classic Baluchi floppy. Selvedge: Flat braided goat hair with coverage ranging from okay to very good.
Fringe: Again, this rug shows signs of finishing in Pakistan where many Afghan rugs are washed and finished (selvedge and end repairs and polishing) Kilim ends are slightly reduced on both top and bottom, Persian closure, kinky warps where kilim reduced. Pile: 5mmWarp: Thin shoots of grey wool.Weft: Blue and grey gotton, double shoots.
Warp Depression:Pretty much flat, so no warp depression.
