Another striped Belouch

Hi Steve,

Here's another one:

This rug was published as pl. 96 in Oriental Rugs from Pacific Collections. It was also featured on the postcard that Skinner sent out announcing their Dec. 2000 auction (I think that's the one). It's asymmetric, open left, with an attribution of "Mahvalet" or possibly Turshiz. It was from the Anne Halley collection. Not sure where it ended up after the Skinner auction.
