At one time, Plate Thirty Two belonged to the well-known carpet scholar Friedrich Sarre and it is now in the Berlin Museum of Islamic Art.

Three other very similar fragments, all of which may or may not be from the same carpet are known. These are presently located in Istanbul , Kuwait and Switzerland .

The Istanbul and Kuwait fragments seem to fit together perfectly but the Berlin piece has a more elegant flow to its horseshoe shaped mihrab that the other fragments lack. The Berlin piece, like the Emperor's carpet, has been given an Indian provenance by some authors, but this theory seems groundless.

These fragments appear to be one of the departure points for the Salting carpets, a controversial group of Persian style rugs that have been variously attributed to either Turkey or Persia and dated between the 16th and 19th centuries.
Legend has it that when Humayun, the deposed Emperor of India, sought refuge at the court of Shah Tahmasp, no prayer rug could be found for his personal use. This is probably a spiteful Sunni tale but how could they have found this carpet? Up until the 1930`s it hung in Friedrich Sarre`s office in Berlin, where a young Kurt Erdmann, perhaps the most famous carpet scholar of the mid-twentieth century, so often admired it.
