Storm Pattern Yei Be Chei, circa 1930s
Navajo Pictorial Rug. Healing Ceremonial weaving depicting 3 patients, Yeis and a Medicine Man. Dimensions: 5' 3" x 9' (1.60M x 2.74M)
First-rate Persian Serapi with spacious, graphic design, 1850 - 1875
A perennial favorite style of our clients for the regal way it unifies a room, this superb 19th century antique Serapi carpet perfectly expresses the most treasured traditional attributes of this beloved Persian village style. It is a spectacular example with its dramatic color shift near the top of the field, its grandly scaled medallion and fascinating, spacious design. Finally, on the detail level, a variety of exotic leaf and blossom motifs are scattered throughout, eloquently expressing a joyful spontaneity.


19th century Hadji Jallili Tabriz Carpet With Exotic Medallion Design
Exceptional balance and a diffuse, ethereal patina of substantial age are among the strong suits of this flawlessly executed 19th century Persian carpet from the acclaimed master designer, Hadji Jallili. The time-softened terra cotta field of this vegetally dyed rug, reminiscent of early Etruscan sculpture, is easily envisioned in a Tuscan decor, such as that of the home on the Italian Riviera where it previously resided.
Turkish Sultan Multi-Dial Bracket Clock, circa 1856
Exceptionally crafted and mechanically complex, this important bracket clock by Payne and Co. represents a significant rediscovery with a remarkable provenance. Almost certainly crafted for Sultan Abdülmecid of Turkey, this stunning timepiece is the sister to a slightly later example displayed by Payne and Co. at the Great Exhibition of 1851.


Patek Philippe World Time Tower, 20th Century
This sleek seven-module time tower was created by Patek Philippe of Geneva. Part of the highly regarded Patek Philippe Electronic Clock System, this time tower was likely once used to help regulate machinery at a military hospital in Helsingborg, Sweden. With this module-style time tower system, one could mix and match components to create a truly unique timekeeping system of their choice.
