I'm not a rug person, and I do NOT need any other bad hobbies. This said, I found an 1880 Oushak rug that I thought was beautiful. ( 9x14?)
Are these serious rugs?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Serious....that's another story. I'm not familiar with that style of rug, but one can always have the rug appraised. I've learned over time what traits and characteristics to look for in a quality rug, but it's a tricky business.
Rugs of high quality can easily last many decades, even with heavy wear.
