It is finished with a slit kilim top and dotted skirt end. Nicely embellished with a salt and pepper weft float on end.
In very good condition, with some wear in the field and along the edges. Nice hearty wool in the pile as well as in the visible brown warps One corner is fraying (pictured), but the overall condition is solid.
