Description
Antique Large original watercolor and gouache study of a Oriental carpet. Professionally framed and double matted. The Back says Mirhali Sarock. PROVENANCE: The Estate of noted NYC attorney, author and well known political advisor Edward N. Costikyan (1924-2012). Measures 29 1/2x25x1. Weight 9 pds. S. Kent Costikyan, founder of Kent- Costikyan, Inc., was born in Marsovan, Asia Minor and educated at Colgate Academy, where he spent two years specializing in American history. His father's export company in Constantinople made a shipment of Oriental rugs to a New York dealer. The dealer failed to remit payment, asserting there was no American Market for them. The rugs were then turned over to S. Kent who sold them to the faculty members of Colgate Academy, a transaction that created a demand for similar rugs. In 1886 a shipment was made to him, and he organized a division of the firm of Costikyan Freres in Rochester, New York. In the next decade he created a public appreciation of Oriental weaves, establishing branches of Costikyan Freres in important centers of the country. In 1900 the firm of Costikyan Freres was dissolved. The firm name of Kent-Costikyan was derived by coupling the family surname of his wife, Mary Kent, with his own. The house that S. Kent Costikyan built was renowned for its collection of museum quality period carpets as well as its selection of 19th and 20th century carpets from the Mid and Far East and European continents. He also created a division which handled fine machine loomed carpets from the United States and abroad. Four generations later and 120 plus years of business the firm is still considered one of the best restoration experts in the business
