It is in very good condition for a carpet that dates circa 1880-1910. It is not full pile but overall it is in good condition with a few low areas, but no major damage or losses. The ends are mostly there and one end even has a selvedge wrap added to protect it. The edges have a few losses with some of the edging rewoven in spots.
It has an pattern of stars within shields or guls in an overall blue field, surrounded by three outside borders.
This carpet originated in the Caucasaus Mountain region between 1880-1910.
These types of rugs are traditionally known as Kazak or Kuba.
