The following is a complete listing of our Antique and Semi-antique rugs and carpets in current stock. They are arranged in order of size, starting with the smallest.
Each and every piece has been personally and carefully selected, based on 45 years of experience buying Antique rugs. I only buy exceptional pieces in perfect or near perfect condition, preferably untouched by restoration, alterations, heavy wear, artificial "antique wash" treatments or any other interference that would negatively effect value.
The quality must be top end, as must be artistic merit, visual appeal and relative rarity within its group.

A charming carpet woven by settled Khamseh tribeswomen who at this time still used natural colours and traditional hand spun wool. The carpet was clearly woven "freestyle", the vast range of symbols and motifs placed where ever the weaver saw fit, containing the whole range of ancient tribal symbols and motifs seen in early tribal pieces from this region. Note the human figures and multitude of birds and animals. In very good condition throughout, complete with original side cords and intact end finishes. There is some very slight spot wear of little consequence, if anything adding to its originality and charm.
An attractive and perfectly preserved Joshagan carpet of higher than average quality, all natural dyes, in full pile and free of repairs. For further info on this piece click on Recent Acquisitions and scroll down.
A wonderful carpet with exquisite colours and a rare, all-over design going back to early Persian carpet history. In very good condition apart from a couple of very minor, old, spot repairs. For further info on this piece, click Recent Acquisitions, and scroll down.
A very impressive and highly decorative Heriz carpet with wonderful colours and well drawn design. Few carpets rival those from Heriz in terms of instant decorative merit, working equally well in minimalist contemporary settings as in classic period environments. This example has great natural colours with strong "abrash" in the pale blues, reflecting its considerable age. In excellent condition throughout with original side cords and ends, no repairs and only minute spots of slight wear in places. A much sought after style of carpet of a great size in a condition you don't come across often.
A beautiful, elegantly drawn Kashan carpet in very good condition throughout, sumptuous and classy with all good natural colours. For further info on this piece, click on Recent Acquisitions, and scroll down.
