This Hamadan rug was handwoven during the second quarter of the 20th century in Western Iran.
The main design is composed of a herati pattern, one of the most classical designs seen in Persian rugs. A beautiful bright red wool (likely a synthetic mixed in with natural dye-stuff) contrasts nicely with the deep blue of the field. The main border is a floral meander on ivory ground.
In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Pile is low, with a soft handle. Ends have been reinforced for longevity.
