Hi Rich,

I think there isn't a slit... just an optical glitch, or something. I've posted some additional pictures below.

Pierre,

Thanks for the excellent information. I'd be very surprised if this is a recent rug. My guess was early 20th century, at the latest. But this is not my area of expertise. I'm going to take a closer look at the carpet to see if I detect more evidence of lack of light-fastness, etc. The bleed is very minimal, so no rescue operation is needed. However, it's good to know for future reference, and to avoid water!

James
