Thanks, Pierre, for that comment about the lack of evidence for lac in Turkmen pieces. I had always believed that dealer/collector comments about its presence was suspect. Just another myth to add to the many in the rug literature. Too bad there is no report of the analysis of these lac-red areas in Turkmen pieces.
