A call for information shall not go unanswered.Carlo Kocman`s interesting rug is a member of a small group of prayer rugs whose design is based on the "Swastika" or "Pinwheel" kazak.The pinwheel group is a large pack of rugs which can be divided into two stacks:those with minor ornaments in the field,and those without.
Writing about this in 1981,Ian Bennett could not remember having seen another similar example.Optimistically dated 1122.
A last piece with the original form was published by George Gilmore:
|6-Teppich Engelhardt-now Ralph Kaffel|
The most enigmatic of all.Kaffel rightly remarks that the ornaments have been borrowed from Borchalou carpets,not Fachralo(the two are often confused)Dated 1829.

The first publication of such a piece(1922)
