For serenity and poise the fragment
from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Joseph Lees Williams Memorial
Collection in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania seems unsurpassed.
This fragment and another in the Burrell Collection, Glasgow,
Scotland were both once part of a three plane lattice design
carpet. By comparison, the Rockefeller-McCormick example, figure
29 is a monstrous thing.
Philadelphia Museum fragment is in better condition than
Glascow's and it well represents a high point in the Persian
weavers fondness for fantastic imaginary flowers.
