Another splinter group of the ‘Red Ground Floral’ type without medallions is best represented by Plate Twenty One. The animal pantomime is gone, with the exception of the paired ubiquitous birds, but it has the same density of design shared by all members of the ‘Heart’ school.

The carpet is less ambitious than the Emperor's carpets and it has been cut, distorting its proportions. Some people find it overloaded in all respects but the color photo here hardly does it justice.

Known now as the Sangiorgi carpet, it was once displayed for a while in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England. Regrettably since then it has disappeared from view and its whereabouts are now unknown.
