Hi. To me it certainly looks like a Persian Qum.

Sharafi,
Thankyou. It was sold to me as a Kashan, but thought it might be Qum. The yellow color was questionable to me, so I wondered if it could be a Chinese knock off. I saw its twin in P.R.J.Ford's book and wondered about it. When it's very fine and looks so real and uses chrome dyes, I am always on the look out for Chinese. Thanks again.
