Dear Marvin and Everyone,
The Turkmen expert was not a dealer, and I'd rather say no more about who it was; that isn't important. I mentioned that the person is highly regarded in this area only to emphasize how firmly the thinking of reddish whites on Turkmen as meaning dye runs and synthetic dyes is ingrained. This is in the face of the fact that most books on Turkmen rugs show some very old pieces with these "runs".
