This piece, with two medallions and part of an end border, is one of a small group of fragments perhaps originally from the same runner, which relate to the ten-medallion runner now in the al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait, LNS 21R. Other fragments include the Christopher Alexander fragment with three medallions, ex. Argine Banaki Salvago, sold Sotheby’s London 7 November 2017, Lot 57 and the fragment with two medallions advertised by Ezkenazi in Hali 108, p.57; opinions vary and the group has been dated variously to 16th-18th century. 

For detailed discussion of this particular group, please see Hali Issue 195, Spring 2018 APG, p.132.  More extensive discussion of  ‘Karapinar’ rugs as a whole, please see Oakley, Penny, ‘Fact or fiction: ‘Karapinar’ rugs from Central Anatolia’, Hali Issue 166, Winter 2010, pp. 40-51

"Acquired at the time Chris Alexander had published his book A Foreshadowing of 21st Century Art. The Color and Geometry of Very Early Turkish Carpets, New York 1993. It took a while to decipher the geometry in carpets as a result of the observation of the heavens, the foundation of art history." EH
