Persian Vintage 9341 Handmade Rug 290cm x 200cm
A vintage rug is usually a hand-knotted or handwoven rug made around 40-80 years ago. Technically antique refers to those rugs made 100+ years ago but seeing a rug made in the 1930's being called antique is not out of the ordinary.
So how do you tell the difference between an authentic vintage rug and a newly woven rug labeled vintage? Just like every other collectible it comes with practice. It won't come overnight, but if you find the deal of a lifetime and it requires a snap decision there are a few things you can do.
