Wow. Looks like I picked an interesting time to check Turkotek

Interesting rug Kay! (interesting conversation, too!)

My thoughts are that this carpet is not Tibetan, it is Chinese, of some variety and made recently for purely decorative FLOOR purposes and has probably never seen the back of a horse. Even a really BIG horse.

Just my 2 cents.

Anyway, for some reason this has put me in the mood for some Niu Rou La Mian. I may have to duck into the city the weekend for a bowl of hand pulled noodles!

Also I hope it is not Goodbye, as I enjoy your Tibetan/Chinese rug posts and conversations very much.
