Dear People,

A well known dealer has sent me images of a few examples that I think are useful for our discussion. He graciously volunteered to remain anonymous; I appreciate this very much.

The first is another example of the four lobed medallion group.

One of the things I find interesting about it is how far the corner "containers" in this one deviate from the more or less circular devices in the first one in my Salon essay. Yet, it's obvious that both belong to the same group.

The second image is one of the more formal pieces, presumably a dowry wrapper.

The fact that it's derived from an Ottoman textile is very obvious, but so is the Kaitag treatment (look at what the embroiderer has done with the lappets on the ends!).

Regards, and my thanks to the person who contributed these images.

Steve Price
