San Francisco Antique Rug Show My Second Day in Town

I visited the San Francisco Antique Rug Show this morning. I loved it. Many good items were on display. I wish I had brought $1,000,000 with me to send all these rug collectors and carpet lovers from around the world home happy with big smiles. There were only 40 of them.

One of my favorites, was an antique  Malayer rug in almost perfect condition exhibited by Owen Perry from London, England. I bought a Sarouk Farahan (Fereghan) from him last year. He was asking $5,800 for this beautiful piece of art. Although it was worth it, that seemed a little out of my budget. The picture of Owen holding the rug is at the bottom of this page.

As in any other rug show around the globe, some rug dealers were happy with the sales, some were not.
