: The traditional task of summarizing the discussion is, for this Salon, painfully easy. Daniel and Steve submitted images of bags that may be cultural corollaries of the teahouse purses and a tiny bit was said of Koran bags, but precious little other information was exchanged.
: Perhaps there was little to be added to my description of these bags. Perhaps they have no aesthetic appeal to the readers of this Salon. Perhaps their urban nature was a turnoff. In any event, the world will little note nor long remember Persian teahouse purses.
: Even if they are not inherently "discussable," I hope that some among the readers found them to be at least a bit interesting.
I for one am very pleased with your choice of "small, ethnographic" weavings. As a small bag collector, I have always been concerned that such minature jewels of the silk-route have languished behind so called high powered and high ticket items, many of which only used the area of their manufacture as a source of cheap, skilled labor. Do it again! all best, saul
