Hi Joy,

First, having checked for the meaning of “mavens” (thank you Rich for enriching my vocabulary) I have to state that if there are any mavens on Turkotek, I am not one of them.

I do not deny the “Caucasomaniac” label having spent many of my younger years buying books on Caucasian rugs and textiles and studying them, perusing the internet on the subject and amassing a lot of related digital imagery.

I scanned most of the above-mentioned documentation and I didn’t find any rug similar to yours.

I am afraid I cannot add more information to the one you already have and I agree with the comments of Rich and Steve.

Which makes this post rather pointless, doesn’t it?

Oh, yes, one thing… I bet the colors of your prayer rug are more brilliant of the ones appearing in your photos. This is not a critic: I know how difficult is to capture the vividness of an oriental rug.

So… Joy, congratulations and en-Joy it
