The raspberry field centred by a cusped apple green medallion enclosed by an ivory waved band surrounded by floral vines framed by sky blue spandrels and wide borders of meandering vines flanked by mustard guard stripes, 300cm by 205cm See illustration

The Berlin based company known as Petag were founded in 1911 and played a similar role to that of Zieglers in maintaining and reviving the quality of oriental carpet weaving in the East. Classical designs were used and often adapted. The design of this carpet suggests a possible Petag origin however the structure and wool are not typical and point more to a possible Indian origin. A similar small scale project is certainly known to have been briefly established in Kashmir in the early years of the twentieth century although most of this production was of small pieces.
