 *Message was: I am happy to find this message board. Maybe some one can shed some light on this subject.I am considering purchasing a karadja runner circa 1925 (3'x11', I am unsure of the knot count- I believe I counted ten/inch vertically but I couldnt quite figure the number along the weft)it looks like a very good rug, crisp design and lovely colours,etc., but the problem is it has faded stripes due to being used as a stair runner.It is an otherwise good specimen and in very good condition. Is it possible that these stripes may begin to blend in with subsequent use on a flat surface? Also, is fifteen hundred U.S. dollars sound like a reasonable price to pay for a rug of this type?
