There is a beautiful example which compares to the present lot in the M. H. de Young Museum, San Francisco, inv.no. L84.166.8. Another in the Marshall collection, see Grube (2003) pl. 15 and also a another similar example cited in the same publication which is dated 1146 AH / 1734 AD,p. 6, fig. 19. There is also a comprehensive list of recorded examples in institutions within the Grube publication. See lot 40 for further discussion of susani.

"The incentive for this desirable group of susanis was set  when H. McCoy Jones acquired four pieces for the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Despite all flowery descriptions I am inclined to say that the position of the red roundels should be based on the Belt stars in the Orion constellation and refers to the heavenly scale. For this reason one would call in a kalamkar specialist to draw out the design on the background." (EH)
