Amazing ART DECO Carpet and Breeding Dressing Tables.

A little while back Kristen went to an Estate and as an after thought he purchased two carpets from the old home. Sometimes after moving the contents of a house the thought of moving more can be a bit much. They came home and went up into the rafters of our house for us to get to eventually. Yesterday I finally pulled them down to check them out and what a great surprise. I am so glad he went that extra effort and grabbed them from the house.
There are two the same one (pictured) is in amazing condition for age when you consider it is a carpet. The other had some wear down one edge so I have given it a good vacumn and it is now in my stall space at the WAC to cover up the ordinary painted concrete floor.
Look at the wonderful details and colours. Don't forget you can enlarge the pictures to have a good look.
This one will be going up on ebay tonight along with some furniture items including 3 different dressing tables.
This one is Rosenstengel in Silky Oak and quite stylish,
This one has no longer got its mirror but someone clever will work something out or maybe use its parts for some other project.
This one is a nice little classic one.
