Another carpet; this time a real clunky, hairy one. Various opinions to its origin and its age; and none particularly flattering. Colours out of a tin I suspect and an in-elegant but 'not folky enough' design to get the carpet heads interested. It looks fine on the floor though; I like it. Measuring a useful 4'6" by 3'3", it has the look of the Turk about it but I'm guessing it's going to turnout to be "off piste", maybe Indian. I'm looking forward to your comments, David! *How wrong can you be? See David Gardiner's reply to get the true story of this Persian Carpet.

My Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay
Welcome to the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am a graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, The Repeaters. Then living in Llandewi Brefi, we had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I have trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web builder and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one.
