Thanks, Marvin, for pointing out my somehow obscure phrasing.

No, what I meant with ďThe fringe was on the wrong side but, given the direction of the composition, it appears to be a rug that has been cutĒ is this:

The fringe seemed to be on the wrong side because itís in what appears to us the long side of the rug.
But the orientation of the animals is parallel with the fringeís side.
As we can see in all the other examples shown in the salon (albeit in FIG 12 isnít clear), the animals are always parallel to the short side, as I would expect in any regular rug.

So, that isnít the long side but the short one: were every self-respectful fringe should be.
