$4,500.00

SKU : 10754, 27503i

This antique Armenian rug is in great condition for it's age and has it's original fringes. The pile is worn in spots and some previously reweaved sections have changed color at different rates giving it a unique distressed look. The inscription on the rug is a date and a saying that roughly translates to "1912 Live In The Moment". The symbols on the rug are interpreted as items related to a baptismal ceremony. The oil vessel and bird are commonly found during baptisms and the hand and comb are believed to be items that the child chose during the ceremony that will guide their life's journey. A truly unique and beautiful piece.
