    Sometimes called "Transylvanian" carpets because many examples were found in central European churches of Hungary and Romania, where they were votive gifts, small carpets like this are often depicted in European portraits of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries draped over tables; later carpets such as this one are more infrequently encountered in paintings.
