The famous Ardebil mosque carpet in the South Kensington Museum has made visitors to that Institution acquainted with the splendid products of the Sixteenth Century looms in Persia. Even fragments of rugs of the kind are extremely rare and precious. Such a fragment, measuring 5 feet 3 inches by 3 feet 9 inches was acquired recently by the Museum at a sale in New York and is here illustrated. The field is red and the design is woven in sapphire blue and in ivory tones.
