The present long rug has design traits that could be associated to both the Moghan region and also to Kuba. The field colours and central vertical row of guls are typical of the Moghan region. When initially catalogued in 1984 Herrmann cited Moghan as the region of origin due to these guls. However the border design is more typical, in turn, of early 19th century Kuba works, see the Thyssen-Bornemisza example, lot 9, and yet the weave is not as fine as you might expect from an earlier Kuba work; it is more reminiscent of Anatolian weavings. This is a very unusual example of what is, most likely, an early Moghan work.
