Anavian New York Antiques


New York Antiques

On September 4th, 2009 I visited Anavian oriental rug and Antique store (New York Antiques) in Manhattan, owned and operated by brothers George and Danny Anavian.  Not the first time visiting: Back in fall of 2008 I took a course through NYU for Oriental rug appraisals and evaluation with Mr. George Anavian.  As mentioned in previous posts, I recommend to anyone interested in the learning background of dating, identifying rugs, assessing dyes and evaluating condition.

By no means is this the largest showroom in Manhattan:  However, George hit the nail on the head when he stated Anavian is 'the General Store for rugs, carpets, and textiles.'  Looking around and sifting through inventory, it's abundantly clear this is absolutely the case.  There's something for everyone: wall hangings, rugs dating back to the 16th century, oversized pieces, collectibles for collectors, tapestries, bagfaces, tribal rugs, workshop rugs, antique Chinese, Turkish, Moroccan, Persian, Indian...  2' - 32'.  You name it.  Suitable for collectors, dealers, designers, and the public.  In addition to new acquisition, trade-ins are also accepted.


Rug Repair

Above:  Cleaning and repairs are availabe at competitive pricing.  "Spend more [elsewhere] and you can't get the same results," says George Anavian.  While visiting, we were able to watch a repair specialist expertly finishing the ends on the antique rug above.  I inquired about cleaning costs with George, which admittedly their prices are very, very reasonable.  Especially for location and option for in home pick-up.

Rabbat Carpet

Above:  This was a fun piece George brought out to show. It's a Rabbat Carpet frrom the 19th century, Morocco.
