"Holbein," two early "Animal/Tree" rugs, a village "Star Ushak," a silk Yarkand prayer rug, a Ladik prayer rug lacking a tulip panel, & a 21 ft. silk pile Kashgar Saph (now in the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco). "Trefoil...a major exhibition designed for the knowledgeable & committed rug collector...an exhibition of international importance..." - George O'Bannon, "TREFOIL at mills College," ORIENTAL RUG REVIEW, Vol. 10:4 (1990).

"TREFOIL contains numerous insights, especially concerning the continuity of certain, possibly emblematic, designs...(It) is very much worth adding to any rug library." - Pamela Bensoussan, "TREFOIL" ORIENTAL RUG REVIEW, Vol. 11:6 (1991).
