: Marvin:
Since some of us have agreed not to speak of rugs currently being advertised by dealers, I wish to write about your collection, which is published. Clearly you were not influenced by aesthetics as the overriding theme of the collection of Turkomans appears to be condition rather than art. Take for example the Beshir ensi with the reciprocal pelt pattern contained within the primary design elements. This rug strikes me as late in addition to containing a questionable dye, provenance not withstanding. I have seen the rug when it was bing offered for sale and I rejected it as aesthetically inferior. Why did you buy it? Was it a bargain? Or did it fill a perceived void in your collection? Enlighten us, please. Thank you. Charles Wilson
