Default Mystery Ersari?Border Design

Hi Chuck,
Thanks for your prompt and very interesting reply to my post.
The mystery now deepens, giving me lots more research to do.
While I take aboard your comments about the possible Afghan Baba Siddiq origin of my piece, and see the almost exact similarities of the two normal borders, I'm left with those larger upper/lower stylized-tree borders.-- so far only seen on a Yomud Juval.
(see http://www.artpane.com/Rugs/R1003.htm)
There's also the fact that the major/minor guls pictured in your rug differ quite widely from mine.
Once again Chuck, my sincere thanks for your input.
