Jason At Historical Society Discussion

Historical Society Discussion About Antique Rugs

Historical Society Discussion – We are pleased to announce that Jason Nazmiyal was asked to participate in a panel discussion at the New York Historical Society. This stimulating panel discussion about antique rugs and carpets, From Tibet to Timbuktu and the Art of Collecting Fine Rugs and Textiles, was moderated by the pillar of the New York rug scene, Mary Jo Otsea, who has long headed the rug and carpet department at Sotheby’s New York.

Jason represented the community of antique rug dealers, while rug collectors and the professionals who advise them were represented by Judith Glass and long time collector Kurt Munkacsi respectively.

The discussion was lively and informative, and touched upon a wide range of issues relevant to building an important collection. Why one collects, what one collects, how one recognizes what makes a piece desirable or important are all pressing issues for collectors.

But what emerged most from the discussion was the very special and symbiotic relationship that exists among those who collect and dealers and advisers who facilitate their collecting passions. Collectors have more in common with dealers than they think, when it comes time to sell or de-acquisition a piece, and dealers often buy like collectors, not simply for profit but with their hearts, while professional advisers mediate between collectors and dealers with a foot in each world, so to speak.

The audience seemed genuinely fascinated by the interaction of these three perspectives and the many insights that they offered.
