Wool Rug with Portrait of Lenin, Special Edition in Commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the USSR, 1982.
Measures 52" x 30.5", while not too small, fairly compact and thus convenient for wall display. Judging by workmanship, floral design and style of the portrait, the carpet was without a doubt crafted in one of the Soviet Central Asian republics, most likely Uzbekistan. On the back in the upper corners are sewn-in rings for hanging it on the wall. The verso also has a factory quality control stamp"1 COPT OTK" ("First Rate, Technical Control Department") and a handwritten mark "71", most likely the state-mandated retail price.
The rug is in superb condition, free of tears, soiling, stains or other noticeable wear. This very uncommon piece can be an outstanding backdrop for the Soviet collection.
