Vintage Egyptian Square Silk Rug

Egyptian Silk Rug - 3'2 x 3'2

Regular price $750.00 Sale

This silk rug was woven in Egypt during the end of the 20th century.

This square rug features a concentric pattern of a variety of hieroglyphics, gods, astrological signs and other symbols of ancient Egyptian mythology. Woven outside of Cairo for the tourist market, it has wonderful quirkiness and just enough kitsch. Was acquired by an American family visiting Egypt in the 1980s and likely woven then or soon before.
