Oriental rugs produced by nomads, village weavers, and urban and village workshops, dating from the 17th through the early 20th century.


Dear Friends,

We are very much looking forward to our 23rd appearance in this month’s Winter Antiques Show in New York, which remains the most prestigious antiques and fine art show in the country. I am honored to be the sole American exhibitor of rugs invited to participate for all these years, and I certainly hope you can attend the show. Please feel free to contact me directly by phone if you would like complimentary admission to the show. If you have particular rug needs, I might be able to bring something specifically for you. If you can’t attend the show, we can work together remotely. As always, you’re more than welcome to visit us at either of our galleries.

We have a busy season at Peter Pap Oriental Rugs. Not only will we exhibit at the Winter Antiques Show this month, but in February I’ll also be mounting what will prove to be the antique rug event of the year. “Artful Weavings” is an exhibition and sale of nomadic and village rugs, bags and trappings that have been collected and held privately over the last 30 years. Everything in the sale is fresh to the market! The pieces from the exhibition will be posted to our website one week in advance of the opening and will be available for purchase beginning February 9th. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, our “Recent Acquisitions” page on our website continues to be the best way to keep tabs on what’s new to our collection.

Best wishes for a very happy new year, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Featured Carpet

c. 1800
East Turkestan

The open blue field of this piece is both visually moving and remarkably rare. Most Khotan carpets utilize a red field and are drawn with either a column of small medallions or allover floral and vegetal patterns. Read More.
