I am so grateful that the little carpet is of some interest, and am intrigued that you Filiberto, maven or not, have been unable to find anything similar, despite your thorough search.

You're quite correct that the true colours are not represented in the pictures. They are very strong but without that brashness that we mostly see in new carpets. I wish I could better convey how they really look. They have that lovely patina of age.

And Rich, I've taken two more pictures, hopefully showing the two cartouches more clearly (the pile hides the full figures) but have sent them to Steve because I fail miserably at posting them myself.

It's the aesthetic beauty of these works of art that I love so much. Finding TurkoTek years ago has given me so much pleasure and so many laughs, and I would like to thank all of you for continuing to share your vast knowledge and your humour.
