I have this prayer rug that is 2.7"x4.3" or 80x130 that I am trying to identify. I also would very much like to know that writing and what it says. Also from looking at the weave, what would be the expected weave count be? Any other information would be greatly appreciated.

Well that is frustrating. Here they are. Thanks for letting me know. I was wondering why I was getting no feedback.

Interesting piece. I think it's from the Northeast of Iran Ferdows. It is a prayer rug. Has an exact date. It is from 1365/05/20, which makes it 30 years old the writings are "Allah o Akbar, Khomeini is the leader" and then probably the name of the weaver "Babakhani".
