NEW YORK – On Sunday, May 1, Nazmiyal Collection will conduct an exciting online auction featuring a selection of outstanding antique carpets and collectible textile pieces from around the world. This unique collection is composed of various collectible, decorative and rare carpets and textiles including rugs from the 17th century to Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern eras.

LiveAuctioneers will provide the Internet live bidding platform.

The 57-lot auction will begin at noon Eastern.

The centerpiece of the auction, an oversized late 19th century silk Heriz Persian rug (Lot 126), is a paradigm of Nazmiyal’s extensive collection given its rarity and inherent beauty. Directly following is an original Mohtashem Kashan (Lot 127) approximately 9 feet by 12 feet with an ivory border adorned with traditional dragon and lion motifs. Both are estimated to sell for far less than market value.

“It’s truly a phenomenal opportunity for anyone interested in antiques or decorative art forms,” said Jason Nazmiyal, owner of the Nazmiyal Collection. “Whether you are a serious collector or are looking for something special for your home, this is a great chance to find that piece for a price you never thought possible.”

The general public can view this collection firsthand during the preview, which will take place at the Nazmiyal Gallery, 31 E. 32nd St., Second Floor, in New York on Thursday, April 28, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday, April 29, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday, April 30, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
