In reasonable condition, with even pile to the majority of the piece, however there is an area of wear near the centre which has resulted in a frayed hole to the carpet
The carpet has been cut for a fireplace and then repaired to one edge and there is a further single cut and repair to the opposite edge
The fringing on the ends is largely gone and there is wear and losses to each end
The sides have some loose threads and the odd area of loss, which is more notable on one side than the other
There are a few minor marks and stains here and there, however the green and blue colours are vibrant still
