|This rug is one of a pair. The differ primarily in their border designs. Both rugs feature two shades of blue, two shades of sienna, two reds and white.|
The top 30 inches of this rug has a dark blue field color.
This rug features a secondary design element that is not seen in its companion. Running down the middle are small burgundy armored personnel carriers. Nice touch.
Both of these rugs are very attractive. The design is dense so the war motifs do not immediately jump out. Also, the kilim ends and fringe are particularly attractive. Condition is perfect.
Rugs are traditionally made in pairs. It is highly unusual to have both available simultaneously.
