Dear Wendel et al -
You wrote in part (about this blue ground khorjin Daniel has found for us):
The border is a simple design that is quite similar to the forms in the center of the primary motifs.
I suspect this border occurs in lots of different weavings. I have a Khurossan Kurd flatweave that apes the Jaf Kurd diamond field design but that has this exact main border. In his book Kordi, Stanzer shows a very similar piece with this border opposite 204 (bottom) and another with this border design at the sides opposite 180. So there's probably nothing distinctively Shahsavan about this border (although I'm not sure you were suggesting that).
