The Beast From The East Has Been Replaced By The Beauties From The Orient

London is bathed in sunshine, well it is at the time of writing this blog. The snow has gone, and here at David J.Wilkins Oriental Rugs, we have received our spring shipments from both Persia (Iran) and Afghanistan. The warehouse at London's Staples Corner is full of beautiful Oriental rugs and Persian carpets, and at prices to suit most pockets. The Vintage overdyed carpets are proving very popular as well as the more traditional designs. And along with the antique rugs and carpets on the new mezzanine display floor, we have Oriental rugs and carpets for all preferences. Do please call to make an appointment, particularly on Saturdays as we can get rather busy. Tennants Auctioneers' Spring Fine Art Sale on 17th March 2018 is set to include furnishings once part of Rounton Grange, North Yorkshire, the Family home of Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert. Lots include Oriental carpets and rugs presented to Bell by King Faisal I of Iraq and curtains designed by William Morris. The Spring sale of Rugs and Carpets at Sotheby's in London has been brought forward by one day to avoid a clash with the Islamic and Orientalist art sales. The sale is now scheduled for the afternoon of Monday 23rd April 2018. The sale includes a further twenty historic Turkish and Persian village rugs and carpets as well as fragments from the Christopher Alexander collection, which follow the successful first sale last November.
