A similar example with tulips between the medallions can be seen Dodds. D., M. Eiland (ed), Oriental Rugs from Atlantic Collections, Philadelphia, 1996, p. 27, pl. 27. A further example which also shares this tulip design and has very similar medallion and 'tiger stripe' leaves is published Eskenazi. J., Il Tappeto Orientale dal XV al XVIII secolo, London, 1981, pp. 25 - 28, tav. 5. For further discussion on the 'Karapinar' group see lot 30.
