Default Chuck's Reference Minor Gul (Detail) and Christie's Example

Here is a detail of one of the pages Chuck referenced. Clearly, this non=Chemeche is an early minor gul and directly relates to the minor gul of the chuval in this discussion. I believe this referenced gul is earlier since it has curvilinear elements at the tips of the guls, which would place it well into the 18th century. It would be nice to see other examples in main carpets and other weavings. The small rectangles in the field of the major guls relate to the Tekke major gul and would indicate a very early date.

Here is another main carpet example from Christies. Note that the minor border, small, alternating yellow and white square relate to the chuval as well:
