Hi Barry, Every time i google 'Tra sylvanian' rugs I get your page But this is a Tuduk. Here are some other brothers, all copied after the wonderful Budapest rug. Is it possible for you:
a. to specify that this is a fake
b: to use another photo, possibly in the right way (palmette pointing up).
Stefano is well known and respected in the field of Transylvanian rugs. He has two books that I know of"The Lutheran Churches of Transylvania and their Rugs: Black Church and the Brasov area2005
