Nazmiyal and Bonhams Combine To Create an Exciting Auction Of Antique Rugs
As many of you may know, for the first time ever, on April 4, 2016, Bonhams Auction House and Nazmiyal Collection are joining forces to launch one of the most exciting and anticipated antique and vintage rug auctions ever.
Paging through the catalog, one does not need to be a great rug maven or scholar to appreciate the caliber of the lots offered. Every single piece was carefully selected as a great example of its kind. Upon closer examination, people are quickly noticing just how affordable the price points are for this one time offering.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for interior designers, collectors, dealers and individuals to own some of the rarest and most decorative antique rugs in the world at price points that are normally unheard of.” States Mr. Jason Nazmiyal, the owner of the Nazmiyal Collection. Jason further states, “The top end of the lot estimates are still a fraction of what one should expect to normally have to pay. We are thinking of it as a one-time chance for people to own a great piece that would not normally be within reach; while auctions are always a gamble and a bit of a risk, we felt it was one worth taking and we are confident that it is going to be a successful, fascinating, and worthwhile endeavor for us all.”
Nazmiyal Collection has worked hard to ensure that the selection is as varied as it is exciting. As a result, this sale has something for everyone!
