European antique oversize carpet ( 600 x 500cm)

£ 7,200.00

600 x 500 cm = 19ft 8" x 16ft 5"

This oversize carpet might have made in Austria. Some of the border has been removed and there and an insertion for a fireplace has been made. It may at some pint had a plain red surround. We made reduce it further and use a part of it to patch to make a clean unbroken and regular finish. The price quoted includes such work. Otherwise the carpet does show some wear.

• Provenance:  Comte du Chastel  de la Howarderie ( Belgium )

Circa 1860
