Hi Pat, et al.,

While mulling over my incomplete satisfaction with an Afshar attribution for Pat's bag, something came to mind, namely:

Rule #1 For Persian Bag Attribution

..which is..

If it has a dark palette and you don't know where it's from, it's from Varamin.

Varamin Kurd goods, and Bakhtiati-Lor goods both have symmetrical knots, and this particular brown is common in stuff from the Varamin area.

I don't find a good analog for the open botehs, but the rendering is consistent with the often rather simplistic rendereing of designs from Varamin as well.

I have Tanavoli's book on Varamin; I'll scan a couple representative images tomorrow.
