Hi Pierre,

As you said, the three rugs are similar, but not identical, and the two more recent seem to me a bit more similar:





I donít think they are modified copies of the 1252 fresco (Fig.9). More likely they are different versions of rugs that were in vogue in 13th and 14th C. Europe.
See also the embroidered linen table cloth posted by Yohann at the top of this page:



different (also on a very different medium) but close enough to justify a comparison.

Regards,

Filiberto
