That is a lovely example shown in the last photos, and has to be very closely related to yours.
I am wondering if these are not wolf heads though, as I can see ears laid back against the neck....(I think!)
I will save these pictures. Thank you for posting them.
One of the first things that came to mind when I saw this post, was;
"I wonder if through travel, the Arabs came in contact with this style of quillon?...as it seems more than a little similar to the Pulwar/Pulouar"
