During a routine trip to a local Catholic Charities, I was asked by the store manager if I would be interesting in purchasing a rug. Immediately upon looking at a number of rugs, I notice that all were of good quality and Persian. One in particular impressed me. That being said, I purchased what I think is a finely woven 19th century silk prayer. I will not pretend to be an expert. But, my experience as such, leads me to the conclusions that it was hand woven with multiple stiches per square inches.
This 19th century silk Persian rug influenced design is a brightly colored formalized pattern of leaves, flowers and birds against a cream background.
