    Silk pile carpets are often exceptionally fine, with a short pile and an elaborate design. All text on the spine has been worn away, and there is significant discoloration. Her drawings masterfully illustrate how rugs are crafted. Revised edition. All items are guaranteed to be as described or they may be returned within 30 days of receipt for a full refund.

    Black and white plates are collotypes, color plates mostly collotypes with 11 halftones. A must for every collector of Caucasian carpets. What you should look for is a pile length that allows the pattern to be accurately represented, but not so short that the rug can be easily damaged. Concepts and information can be just as helpful for the novice to the expert. Happy Rug Learning!
