First of all, many thanks to Steve who allows me to reawake this salon with this new software.
Earlier postings from Wendel and Michael suggested that there was some interest to trace the design of rug 1
I used the UB code to write this message and I think the result is
Latif Kerimov Azerbaijan Carpet Volume III ( page 56 plate 78): a "Fyndygan" carpet from the Baku group 19th century
Latif Kerimov Azerbaijan Carpet Volume III ( page 60 plate 41) an "Ajikabul" carpet with pair gels from the Shirvan group 19th century.
All these pictures can't be posted here but if one of you not having access to this book would want to see one of these pictures I would be pleased to send it in aperture of a private E-mail.
Azerbaidjan carpets Volume II (page 94 - 95), Lativ Kerimov illustrates
various type of this pattern with variation of the internal decoration
following its use and its origin's. He adds the following comments
concerning this design at page 223:
Thanks for your participation

|Dear Daniel, Ketebe is a new term to me, but appears to be a synonym for one with which I am familiar, cartouche. On first reading your post I thought it said kejebe, a term familiar to all Turkmen enthusiasts. A kejebe is a tent-like affair atop a camel that hides the bride during Turkmen wedding processions. It also refers to a fairly common Turkmen design, which, interestingly enough, looks just the way your ketebe would look if you cut it in half and joined the two halves at their points. And, very often, a series of these motifs is interrupted by one or two large medallions. I'm afraid that if I go any further Constantinos Maroulis will surface and give me a lesson in linguistic reasoning, so I'll just leave it at that. Steve Price|
