Glad to hear it was of help!
A similar rug is identified in P.R.J. Ford's book "Oriental Carpet Designs" as a Kolyai Rug, sometimes spelled 'Koliaei.' Here's the a match we found, but as always, be sure to bounce questions off to the experts on our Rug Rag Forum prior to purchase.
As stated in Ford's Book, it's "One of the most famouse Kurdish designs of all, known as the 'Takht-e-Jamish'. 'Takhat' means throne or seat of Government; Jamshid was the fourth ruler of the world in the Persian legend of the creation and is considered the patron of arts and crafts. The name Takht-e-Jamshid is used colloquially in Persia to indicate the palkace of Darius at Persepolis..."* It's a great book for reference.

For all those interested in submitting a question to the Rug Rag
Editors: We'd be more than happy to help, please send some photographs
reverse side of the rug very close up with a quarter placed on the
knots, plus a picture of the fringe, the whole face of the rug and
detail shot of the pile. If the rug is worn, please include
photographs of worn areas. For rugs of any age, please be sure to
check for dry areas, moth damage, odor, and whether or not the rug is
straight/has right angles where called for. If you
have any questions about our assessment request feel free to send us an
email. Otherwise, we are looking for
something similar to these images posted here.
