Default Can Anyone Identify this Bag?

I think it may be Shahsevan because I've seen a bag with similar bird and candlestick-type motifs for sale on the internet, described by the seller as Shahsevan. Mind you, a seller's description is not necessarily correct. Kazaks don't come from Kazakhstan, as claimed by so many sellers.

Hi Ian

The iconography looks like it's Akstafa Shirvan, but the colors are all wrong for that. Perhaps it was given a chemical wash.

Bakhtiari. With possible knotted-pile panel(s) removed....Wrong proportions for anything else.
