Dates

 

dates in oriental rugs are helpful, but not necessarily the end all be all.  It's not entirely uncommon for reweaves to be made to date a rug older, or perhaps even have an older carpet copied nearly knot for knot.  This is a work in progress, and all carpets and rugs will be sorted by vintage.  In the meantime, enjoy browsing the collection of detailed images of dates woven into these older examples!
