Exceptional Collection of Rugs & Carpets

Over the last several years our Fine Rugs and Carpets department, headed up by Andrew Brandt, has been quietly building up a loyal following of collectors, designers and dealers. Attracted by the high-quality bar and carefully selected offering, we are now conducting six auctions each year featuring weavings from all the major centres of Central and East Asia.

This June we are delighted to offer two single-owner collections in a single auction with the proceeds going to benefit the McMaster Museum of Art and the Ontario Arts Foundation, respectively. The online auction runs June 23 - 28.

The first collection features primarily an array of village and tribal pieces from the Caucasus and Central Asia. Of particular note is a stunning late 19th century South Caucasian Prayer Rug in rich colours and in very good condition. A number of Turkoman weavings of very fine quality and condition round out this wonderful collection.

The second collection is centred on Chinese weavings from the mid 19 through the early 20th century. Throne covers, runners and rugs of excellent quality are scattered throughout the collection alongside numerous Persian and Indian silk or part silk workshop rugs.

Please see the online gallery here.
