This one looks like an Indian Jaipur. They are cheap rugs with lousy wool.
Retail replacement around £800-1000 but no resale value to speak of.

Sorry, that was for the third pic.
first pic looks like a Romanian carpet. They’re good quality but really just furnishing carpets. It is hand made probably circa 1960. They have decorative value only maybe £4-500 for a six metre carpet.
second one is Persian from one of the villages around Hamadan central Iran I recognise the weave, but the name I’ve forgotten at the moment.
Retail on that in good condition around £1200. Only worth a few hundred in the trade.

Hi Declan

I really don’t know how people come up with their dates. These Bakhtiari rugs are at most 50 years old probably around 1970. They would retail at about £600-800 each.

Sorry I’ve just seen your post.
it is indeed a sumac, but to be slightly more precise it’s an Afghan Belouch Sumac. They are relatively cheap to buy under £500 retail.
