Since 2002, Nazmiyal Auctions has been offering fine and rare antique rugs and decorative carpets to discerning customers and collectors from all over the world. Nazmiyal has one of the most comprehensive collections of antique carpets and vintage rugs in the industry. Unlike new carpets, vintage and antique rugs represent an opportunity to own a piece of history. A new rug, however beautiful it may be, does not offer the same patina or historical romance.
Over time, an antique carpet’s age becomes even more extraordinary: colors enhance, luster appears and deeper levels of beauty are revealed. Now, for one of the first times, buyers have to opportunity to purchase antique rugs at comparable – and sometimes lower – prices than those of new rugs and carpets. Our rug auctions consist of a collection which includes antique Persian rugs, Oushak carpets from Turkey, Scandinavian rugs by some of the most renowned textile artists of the twentieth century, and many more great examples.
