Sotheby's New York, Oct 1, 2015

An exceptional sale that included few period items including a unique Polonaise rug. The following are photos of the items I liked the most.

My comment on the sale was that the exhibition of most of the carpets on the floor was not accomodating the serious buyers, since the carpets were opened on top of each other. It is probably because of the limited space the house designated to the sale but nevetheless it took away from the sale. Not all the potential buyers are experts that can judge from the corner of the carpet.
