A Chinese vase my daughter gave me for Christmas, some years ago. Not one of those ones that cost two thousand bucks.... a very nice imitation, though, I think!

I liked the dramatic shadows the sun was throwing, as it slanted through the window an hour before sunset.

Beginner's Guide To Oriental Rugs - 2nd edition







Publishers Weekly Review
This basic guide to oriental rugs is organized to the advantage of the novice collector. A comprehensive section describes and illustrates the 41 most common motifs (geometric, floral and medallion styles and their variations) and the geographic areas where these motifs are produced.

Once the motif of a rug is identified, readers can find a listing of the villages or tribes that characteristically employ that design, and can further discriminate according to the type of weave used in each region. Persian, Caucasian, Turkish and Turkoman rugs are covered, as well as those made in India, Pakistan and Roumania.

BACKCOVER:
There are numerous "Coffee table" art books available that serve as a catalogue of some Oriental rugs. Although useful, most of these books tend to leave people confused and are more akin to a museum catalogue than serving as a useful working book for one intending to purchase or identify oriental rugs.

Invaluable for the prospective owner and experienced collector, the "Beginner's Guide to Oriental Rugs" presents clear illustrations of many of the most common designs found in Oriental rugs. Along with these designs are descriptions of the various rug makers that use the designs. To help refine things, the designs are followed by a detailed description of the rugs produced by each of the major rug producing tribes or towns. Complete advice is also given on evaluating a carpet, what makes one carpet more valuable than another, and how to take care of a carpet once you have it.

Other useful features include a glossary, maps of all major rug producing areas, the history of Oriental rugs and how the carpets are made, etc. Here is the one book you will need to identify, evaluate and purchase oriental rugs.

AUTHOR BIO:
Linda Kline has been collecting Oriental rugs for almost two decades and has traveled extensively in her endeavor. She has encountered hundreds of people in this profession and offers the Beginner's Guide to Oriental Rugs as a way to reduce the amount of time, money and effort the average person faces when considering purchasing oriental rugs.
