RK needs to make a few things clear in this discussion.
1. Even though we believe the chuval from the Capri show is very likely to be pre-1750, we do not believe it is the group's archetype.
2. Frankly, there are several features which imply it is not, the most obvious is the compression of the minor gol.
3. Also the outline or shape of the major gol, which is decidedly unusual, has strong overtones of "Tekke" style, rather than archaic/classical "S" group.
4. Also one of the centers of the major gol, there are two versions there look carefully and you will see them, are likewise "Tekke" style and not "S" group.
The chuval below, which at one time was ours and is illustrated in our Tent Band Tent Bag publication, is in our opinion the model, or archetype, for a major portion of the Capri example's features.
Notice the special way the main border kotchak are depicted, as well as the same, and far less compressed, minor gol. Also the positioning of half-minor gol at both sides and the top and bottom.
And the tall, perfectly sculpted, stepped-outline/shape of its major gol, see the detail below, surely seem to have provided the impetus for the development of a major gol like the one on the Capri example.
Also the elem panel on our ex-collection bag displays a far more archaic and potent version of what some call a "flower skirt.
RK has no qualms in stating our belief if the Capri chuval is pre-1750, our ex-collection chuval is pre-1650....
