I recently purchased an old rug, approximately 100 years. The family believed it was Persian, the cleaner and guy who did a small repair to it thought Afghan pattern but maybe made in Persia. It's kork wool, with a really interesting geometric all over pattern with a fleur de lis or something around the edges. There's some type of signature, and a tag on the back (German, so I don't know what it says). If anyone is able to help me identify it I'd be very grateful. I've been to so many websites trying to find similar patterns but haven't had any luck so far. I don't need a price, I love it and have no plans to sell it, but I just like knowing more about it if possible.

It is a turkish rug from the town om Melas / Milas. It was made within the last 20 years. The quality is pretty good.
