Yetkin defines four types of 'Dragon' carpet: 'Archaic,' ‘Four-Dragon’, ‘Dragon and Phoenix’ and as a further combined development of the latter, the ‘Two-Dragon’ style. With its alternate rows of four lozenges containing a dragon figure, the present lot belongs to the 'Four-Dragon' group, whereas lot 160 is a 'Dragon and Phoenix' type. The carpet offered here is generally more angular and stylized in its drawing and representation of dragons, while lot 160 is more naturalistic and closer to the earlier 'Archaic' types, suggesting that the present carpet is slightly younger than lot 160.
