Claremont Rug Company of California Acquires Large Private Collection

Claremont Rug Company of California specializes in rare and antique oriental rugs.  Founder Jan Winitz announced February 12, 2008 the addition of a newly acquired, large private collection of valuable Oriental Rugs from an unnamed wall street financier.  Now in his 80's, the collector recounted how much of his Oriental Rug collection would adorn the walls, floors and even chairs in his home located in the Hudson Valley region of New York.   This is said to be one of the largest acquisitions of art-level antique Oriental Rugs to date.

The seller's desire to sell his unique collection of Oriental Rugs (which had taken some 50 years to gather) is to see to it that the next owners are those who can share the appreciation and happiness the pieces had brought him.  One of the very distinguished rugs of this collection includes a very large hadji jalili carpet measuring 15x21, and another Bakshaish dragon design carpet approximately 200 years old.  Read More
