There is a compelling analog in Jurg Rageth's book Turkmen Carpets: A New Perspective, Vol. 1.

See plate 104, page 222 with an example of a Yomut rug attributed to the Gorgan/Atrek Plain or Astarabad.

It seems that late 18th - early 19th century is reasonable based on design similarities.

There is also a chuval example, less similar but the same date range; plate 82 on page 178.
