once again looking for knowledge from my Collector's weekly family. I have had these rugs stored and really need to find out something about them. Theses also came from the late estate of this Gentleman who appears to have Collected Everything from all over the country. I do not see any markings as far as Mfg. or country. I do not know the material that was used either. That's right, I need Help ! Thanks in advance to my family!!!!! The big rug measures around 11-6 x GUESSING 12 or 15.

Mystery Solved

    Hi Mike! Okay, I have a little (little!) rug knowledge. So here is me throwing some ideas out there...
    First rug wool? Victorian? Pretty beat up/wore out common pattern that I have seen before but don't know name.
    Second rug, cotton? Not sure of anything else here. Newer?
    Good luck, and I hope someone who really has knowledge helps out.

    Thx. my amberRose, on the second rug I did find a label on the other end once I unrolled it. it Reads, THE GULISTAN, A&M KARAGHEUSIAN INC. 295 5th AVE. N.Y. Is that just Dust under the rug or what ?
