The high point for me

Hi John

Looks like a great show and tell.

I think the piece that is giving you attribution problems is probably Avar (Daghestan).

My favorite in the group you showed is Bob Nooter's runner. He and his wife have wonderful eyes for aesthetics, and were among the leading collectors of African art long before they became interested in rugs.

Thanks for sharing this.

Hi John,

I agree with Steve: the rug is probably an Avar.
Here’s another one:

The design is probably derived from felts. See this old discussion on felts from Daghestan here
