Collector's Corner: Antique and Collectible Tribal Rugs

At Sidhartha Antique and Modern Rugs
Oriental Place Suite 236 (near the Oriental Hotel)
Chroen Krung (New Road), Soi 38
At 10.00 a.m.

Feroz Qureshi has recently moved to Thailand, bringing with him an impressive collection of antique oriental rugs and textiles. He gave up a successful business career in Singapore to devote more time to a hobby that has blossomed and has enabled him and his wife to open the Sidhartha Gallery for antique and modern rugs in the prestigious Oriental Place. Feroz will explain how to differentiate a good rug from a poor quality one. He will also explain what makes certain rugs such valuable and desirable objects for collectors. Participants will be able to ask questions as to colors and designs of the various rugs. Feroz is knowledgeable about the subject having learned about oriental rugs during the months spent in Europe and the UK with rug scholars and museum curators.
