Merge[edit]

  • Oppose merge One is the generic term, the other an extremely famous individual carpet. Why merge? Johnbod (talk) 15:08, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Oppose merge Because the above statement is absolutely spot on. Mabalu (talk) 00:11, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose merge. The Ardabil Carpet has a unique notability above and beyond the general subject of carpet making in Ardabil. – Athaenara 21:14, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Title capitalization[edit]

Should the word 'carpet' in the title be capitalized? The phrase 'Ardabil Carpet' seems to be capitalized most of the times it appears in the article, however the quote from the book has carpet lowercase. I'd tend to think that carpet shouldn't be capitalized in the article in general, but thought I'd check and see what others thought. Loggie (talk) 12:48, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd say it is a proper name & shgould be capitalized, as the V&A does[1]. Johnbod (talk) 13:00, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Who am I to go against what the V&A says-let's leave it capitalized then. Loggie (talk) 13:23, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Year of origin of the carpet[edit]

In the sentence referred from The Story of the Carpet by Essie Sakhai (p.11) he concludes it was woven in 1539 or 1540, but the inscription on the carpet is said to read 946. Adding 622 to that year works out to 1568. Is the 946 wrong, or is there some other explanation? And the last sentence reads: "The incomplete remains of the other …" in his book, not " …remainder…". With respect, Jan von Erpecom 21:01, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

  • It's not just +622, it's G=H-(H/33)+622, which gives 1539/40. Hijri is a lunar year, after all. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:13, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

The Ardabil Carpet
The Ardabil Carpet in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England, is a Persian carpet completed during the reign of Tahmasp I (mid 16th-century). Acquired by the museum in the 1890s, the carpet, which has 26 million knots, was "in tatters" and was restored by sacrificing a similar rug.Carpet: Maqsud of Kashan; photograph: Victoria & Albert Museum


metric conversion[edit]

There is something amiss with the bit in the second paragraph stating that the carpet contain "300–350 knots per square inch (470–540 knots per square metres)." If "300–350 knots per square inch" is correct, this would mean roughly 45-50 knots per square centimeter -- or 450,000-500,000 knots per square meter. (And the unit should probably be "square metre" rather than "square metres.") PurpleChez (talk) 00:36, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
