w+a sometimes you find with antique rugs that the patterns and designs are from an era that is no longer duplicated or produced. Patterns/designs change, even colors used will change and with the current trade restrictions on Iran the entire market may change again and has changed in recent decades. Some countries produce rugs made using Iranian patterns, but with their own unique color schemes, and with better and better quality these days.
The workmanship in Iran is amazing and handweaving these rugs is a learned trade that risks being lost on a generation in Iran due to gov't stupidity and rising labor costs. The rugs of today may be worth a whole lot more in the next century.
