A Precursor???

A most welcome comment on this post has just come in from the folks at warrug.com, which causes me to reassess my interpretation of this as a possible precursor… Kevin and Rebecca read the date as 1349, not 1369, which would date this rug to 1991. My original comment was as follows…

This rug shows a cityscape dominated by a zig-zag road, with traffic and vehicles on the roads and around the border. At the top you’ll see a flight of six aeroplanes. At first this seemed like an early war rug, but then we noticed the date – 1349, or 1970. It would be nice to find other examples which are precursors to the classic “war rug” types and categories. This one has had a hard life, with holes and repairs, but it has survived with a wonderful golden sheen.
