Drone Medallion

Original Medallion Drone War Rug with Dark blue field.

It is hard to tell without tearing into the rug, but I have concluded they are asymmetrical open right, and the warp depression has pushed the left node above the right node, making it look like symmetrical knot.

This rug seems to be a riff on antique (and contemporary) Turkmen designs known by the name of the 19th century town where tribal and workshop rugs were consolidated, Bokara, or Bukhara. Warrug doesn't traffic in antiques, but the rug in this link is an example of an Ersari Turkment rug
