In 2017 there was an exceptional auction in Australia, which I just learned about from Luca Brancati’s Pinterest, of the Australian rug dealer and expert Jacques Cadry’s collection.
Here is a fine Kirman pictorial rug showing a scene familiar to fans of Afghan Pictorial rugs showing a garden scene with a woman pouring wine in a scene taken from Omar Khayyam’s Rubaiyat.
Here is an Afghan take on the same subject:
There were four Baghlani rugs in the auction, each one unusual and cool.
There were also a few examples of so-called Diamond Herati designs, which are the famous Herati design from Herat area.
Finally, there are a couple rugs which provide a unique and important perspective on an Turkish war rug from around the time of World War I
Available, please stay tuned for better photos.
