A interesting 1940's "washed and painted" Lillihan from Iran. If you look at the backside photo of this carpet. You will see the original color. From about the 1920's to the 1950's some types of rugs were bleached of their field color, as they were considered to bright for the market, and then re-dyed in a deeper color. As you can see from the front shots. This is definitely one of those rugs. It has great trees or plants growing up in the field. The size is 3ft 10in x 4ft 4in. It is worn to the base knot in places and has lost the end borders. However, the rug has been professionally overcast and is ready for enjoyment again. Fun on the floor or even to hang.
