Thanks for your kind and always interesting comments.
I share your thoughts. This rug isn't Turkmen and I have never thought it could be!
My feeling is only that these bag faces have a central medallion which is widely used among "Turkic tribes" and must therefore have an old "Oguz Turkmen" ancestry.
After having read back my comments concerning these bag faces, I see I have forgotten to make my own attribution.
My thoughts are that it is a North West Persian or a Transcaucasian bag face.
I don't think it is South Persian and at least a Gashgai, Kamseh or Afshar attibution may be easily refuted. So if it was South Persian to which tribe are you thinking?
