Riassunto: A beautiful, practical introduction to Oriental carpets for laymen, designers, and collectors, presented from the perspective of a successful, third-generation wholesaler. Using concise text, over 370 vivid color photographs, and more than 45 detailed line drawings, J.R. Azizollahoff explains the complexities, intricacies and irregularities in old handmade carpets and identifies the more important rug types. The combined text, photographs and drawings also bring to light what dealers look for and examine when evaluating an antique carpet. Also provided is a look at new carpets, which gives the reader a glimpse of the wonderful energy and creativity to be found in modern rugs. Approximate values, newly revised to reflect current prices, are included with the photographs as a helpful guide for consumers and collectors. The book's bibliography provides useful listings for further research.
I am J.R. Azizollahoff, an oriental carpet dealer and consultant and the author of "The Illustrated Buyer's Guide to Oriental Carpets." The purpose of this book is a little different than most rug books in that I try to convey the essence or aesthetic of old and new oriental carpets in pictures. With over 370 color photographs, this may be the most copiously illustrated rug book ever published. In addition, I give down-to-earth data, as clearly and directly as possible, about oriental rugs so that buyers, by following my advice and the 45 diagrams which illustrate the imperfections in old carpets, can purchase rugs more safely. The prices that accompany each carpet illustrated caused a stir in the market because some rug dealers believed that estimates are entirely subjective and that no price should be put on carpets at all. While some old rug dealers felt that I gave away too many trade secrets, most would agree with me that an educated consumer, or one who does not buy blind, is ultimately good for business.
