Hi Patrick,

This would indicate that these pieces had been on the market in the west since the beginning of rug collecting.
Or at least since they finished the Ardebil Carpet.


I'll admit that I often prefer a Dijon shade, except perhaps for some of the brilliantly bright yellows sometime found on even very old Anatolian rugs that Bohmer has suggested were dyed with some form of luteolin.
Well, I was thinking more of a lemon chiffon. Maybe even a banana creme. But the old Anatolian yellows are a whole 'nuther subject. I'll trade you my Tatari for one!

I was merely reporting.
But of course!
