No heavy fade but the edges to one side does look a bit fainter in colour. Blemishes to the pale tan binding strip on the reverse of the rug. No smells that I picked up BUT this is a USED vintage rug and so goes without saying you should clean before re laying. No rips nor holes and no excessive wearing/thinning of the pile. Sigh they do not make them like this any more - I find current offerings through them a tad bit boring, this rug was I think, produced in their heyday!
Exquisite rug by way of design, colours and of course weave - the patterns are textured and raised off the backing, adding more depth and character to what is a sensationally beautiful looking rug already! Sophisticated colour palette in what was officially labelled "CROCUS" through Laura Ashley. This I translate to varying shades and tones of purple. There are injections of palest blues, deep biscuits and buttermilk creams. A woven most elaborate design of fanciful French scrolls and other floral tapestry like patterns - would blend in perfectly with that Victorian Period interior seamlessly, although equally as nice in any setting I feel.
232 cm x 160 cm or 91.3 inches x 63 inches respectively.
