I thought this was an interesting link by Jilly. The seller says it's Isfahan, but most everything about it, including the flatwoven areas, kilim, edges, fringe, appears to be a Chinese Hereke. For some reason I just don't trust that importer tag.

hmm, the kilim reminds me of an Indian rug but I don't have photos.
The seller is one of those many IDs for one company in South Carolina.

I am working and just saw this. I am sure you are right, I feel intuitively....re all of the above. But boy, that is still a gorgeous rug whatever its actual origin. I have no use for this rug but I would still like to have it. lol I like the colors, what I see as harmony and balance, that it is part pile and part woven, I like the kpsi and I like the crested bird.

People who erode trust are exhausting. People who earn it and augment it, the opposite. Why can't they just tell the truth?

Just to complicate thing further, he is a recently sold interesting piece with impressive provenance, silk, tree of life, birds, etc., I guess we should trust it is Persian given the gallery:

WOW! I wonder what was up with that Souf Kashan. it looks like it was used, but if it's in good condition, that's a good deal

I would have no clue re the value in either currency......but I think the whole world is being impacted by the meltown and there are fewer people with deep pockets. Even at Christie's auctions. Here or across the Pond.

I definitely have the rug sickness tho. lol

Well, Netjim is right and I will extend it employing creative license..there is indeed, a giant Rug Walmart in one of the Carolinas using different names and they get the same stuff from the same supplier, OMG, wut is the PURPOSE OF THIS????? Are these 3 separate rugs? One rug offered under three different vendor names? What is this????????

If I had 50,000 + rugs I wanted to sell - mostly on e-bay or at least on-line - I would probably look into having multiple IDs and assigning each to a specific employee to monitor.
