"What you say makes excellent sense to me, Thelma. In particular, I agree that they are all Pashtun. And you may well be right to think that the Bir identification was based on the place of acquisition."

"Yes, I started by thinking that these came from Swat; and Swat was one of the locations mentioned by the excellent seller... together with Kohistan and Nooristan. I suspect they may have been included in the Afghanistan chapter of the Bir book…"

"Hi Joost,thank you for your nice comments on the G'au. This kind of G'au should have a silver back; some other types come (originally only with copper-, brass- or even iron backs. So this a hint to the authenticity of the piece.BestMichael"

"You have posted a very interesting example, Michael! I do agree with you that it - more obviously than Thelma's - does seem to show us a tree. Actually, looking more closely at Thelma's, I see that the straight piece below the turquoise…"
