19th & 20th Century Rug Auction
Woven in village workshops, these 19th-20th century ornate rugs reveal cultures across Asia and the Middle East. For centuries, collectors and decorators have marveled at the variety of intricate, colorful designs. Whether floral or geometric, the patterns retain a sense of elegance and refinement. At the same time, their hand-knotted and needle-pointed wool insists on humble origins. These carpets carry both utilitarian and artistic value, enlivening any room with rich tradition.
