of the beauty of antique textiles



2014 NEWS


Just finishing up teaching Introduction to Antique Oriental Rugs at the Institiute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth. Watch this space for the announcement of the Fall class.


Off to Europe soon to give a talk at the annual European Baluch Rug Collectors Meeting, this year being held in Stuttgart.


Will be exhibiting again this year at the Sturbridge Vintage Fashion and Textile Show on Monday May 12 in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.


ARTS in San Francisco

As in other years, we will be at the Capri Motel in San Francisco from Thursday October 16 through Sunday October 19.

The ARTS show there is the best show for collectible antique rugs and textiles in the United States.

Hope to see you there



New objects are constantly coming and going, so it is impossible for us to keep the offerings on the site up to date.
New pieces are added to the site on an irregular basis.

Please do be in touch if you have any questions about items on the site, or if you have questions about pieces, collectible or decorative, that we might have or be able to help with.

Based in the Upper Connecticut Valley of Vermont, not far from Hanover, NH (home of Dartmouth College), I'm actively engaged in attempting to promote the awareness, understanding, and appreciation of antique textile art. I am regularly back and forth to the Boston and New York areas, and entirely accessible by internet and phone. 
As in the past, we will be available to show pieces by appointment should you find yourself in the green hills of Vermont, and will continue to show at ARTS  in San Francisco and elsewhere.
