For an overview of the genre, see 'Animal and Tree Carpets An Amorphous Group' Bennett. I., Hali, 1994, issue 73, pp. 90-99 and Appendix pp.111-112.  Bennett identifies 19 related rugs, and groups these rugs loosely, primarily according to design features, into 7 sub-groups.  This example is not illustrated in the articles (and its whereabouts were unknown to him in 1994), but is the rug listed as B7, 'The Bechirian rug'.  Amongst the other examples of the group it is most closely related to is 'The Worwosky rug' (B6), also not located, illustrated in the Appendix, ibid., with which it shares the cypress trees springing from boxes reminiscent of raised beds, the central flowering tree, the animal combats and horses; charming and naïf renditions of motifs borrowed from classical Persian carpets.
