This plate illustrates a "RAHVERE" rug, a product of the Kirmanshah District of Persia, with the design wrought in soft blues, reds, greens and browns, on a rich cream ground. QUALITY ORIENTAL RUGS Quality is the fundamental factor to be taken into consideration when purchasing Oriental Rugs. Design and color effect, at the present time, influence the selection of Eastern Rugs, to such an extent, that due consideration of quality is apt to be neglected. Although we specialize in artistic designs and color effects, we have always maintained a strict adherance to a high standard of quality. We have a complete stock of rugs of the same weave and similar in character to the rug illustrated above, in a wide range of sizes. We invite a comparison of our prices with those quoted elsewhere.
