Oriental Carpets by Robert de Calatchi

"77 full-page color and black-and-white photographs, in-depth captions, and a rich narrative combine to make this early out-of-print book an invaluable resource reference work. In this beautifully illustrated book, the author introduces us to a remarkable survey of antique and semi-antique Oriental rugs which are so avidly collected today in Europe and America. A captivating history of Oriental rug making throughout the ages is followed by a discussion of the chief carpet making centers ? Persia, Turkey, the Caucasus, Central Asia, India, and China.

?In his study of each of these geographical origins of the Oriental rug, the author teaches the reader how to recognize regional characteristics in design and color so that he may quickly identify where any rug was made. This discussion of a rug?s provenance also is accompanied by an examination of the symbolic motifs which most writers in the past have failed to clarify for the Western collector.? Illustrated with 48 full-page color and 29 black-and-white photographs, this oversized book belongs in the permanent reference library of the collector, dealer, or historian of Oriental carpets. "
