Hi Rich,

I tend to check publication date of whatever rug book I'm reading because times change and what's desirable in one period can fade in another. I hope (and imagine) that it's cyclical with oriental rugs.

But I hate to see them thrown out to be lost forever. I will end up with a lot of bedraggled injured old things - a sort of sanctuary for has-beens (and some inevitable duds). Their impoverished state doesn't bother me at all.

Thank you for clarifying Bennett's comment. Not that I mind that they once flooded the market! My rug guy couldn't even identify it. But he's Iranian and they tend to have eyes only for ...

I know. It's a jungle out there.
