Antique Tibetan small rug, with a wonderful rare green ground, and a design inspired by Ming brocades. Finished with the traditional red felt edging and backed in the usual blue Indian cotton (probably not original). Circa 1880-1900. At least 12 different colors used, including early synthetic dyes introduced circa 1880. 24" by 34". One well-done old repair top center. This rug is very similar to rug 43 (color illustration p. 40 in "Temple, Household, Horseback: Rugs of the Tibetan Plateau") and features the same wonderful rare green ground.
