: The Talish depicted in "Oriental Rugs In Autrian Collections" is my piece and is the frontispiece of Ruglore. The writer Trimbacher, a stooge for Ferdie Besim, called it a Gendge based on coarsness of weave. Everyone, who has seen the carpet calls it a Talish. Its outstanding characteristic is that it is a methane with a green center.
Marla Mallett noticed that the wefts "anchoring" interlaced the ground warps over paired warps and asked herself it it could be a peculiar feature of the Talish family.
Does this feature appear in your rug?
