Synopsis:

Antique Oriental Rugs and Carpets will be invaluable both to collectors and dealers and to those who wish simply to enjoy rugs and carpets through the printed page.

Full Description:

Unlike many antiques that are collected, rugs and carpets are both functional and integral part of interior decoration, thus being sought after both for their antique interest and for their aesthetic appeal. Collecting rugs and carpets is influenced as much by personal taste as by rarity and collectability.

The book introduces us to the fabulous world of the oriental rug. It takes us on a tour of the rug-making centres, showing how the traditional designs and colours have evolved and provides valuable advice on rug identification. Useful design and identification keys will help reader with on of the recurring problems in rug collecting, that of attributing the rug to the right part of world and to the right period.

64 pages of full colour photographs, enhanced by the large format of the book, display the beauty of rugs and carpets covered.
