Here we go with the start of the 4th of July holiday week so as you might expect there most likely will not be much in the way of rug world activity , but then again you just never know .
Stranger things have certainly happened ?
Viva , USA ! FIFA , Woman's World Cup , USA 2 ,Germany 0 .
Forward to the finals.
Finally something positive !
More of the same !
Joyous 4th of July !
FIFA , Woman's World Cup finals . USA prevails over Japan , 5 to 2 .
Awesome !
A great way to end the Independence Day weekend !
Rug world activity should pick up a bit this week.
Off we go !
IMG_1219Tennant's Auction of North Yorkshire , U.K. has a “Summer Fine Art” sale scheduled on July 17-18 that includes 31 oriental rugs , carpets and textiles , live on the line now.
Nothing in the way of a true standout item in the group , just what appears to be a decent selection of overall good condition pieces.
One lot # 845 “Bukhara” Susani , pre-sale estimate £ 15-2500.00 may bare closer scrutiny if your in the vicinity .
Not a big deal but better than nothing .
In this quite period for fresh rug world news it's maybe worth your time to take a quick look .
The upcoming “Netherhampton” sale in Salisbury , U.K. scheduled on July 15 is live now . This time out the sale features approx. 359 lots of all manner of hand made weavings .IMG_1224
As is their M O nothing in the way of serious collectors item in the group .
This being their mid Summer offering the group is some what smaller than the spring and fall sales and as usual the inventory is along the same lines , mid to low end commercial pieces .
However as I always say there are so many pieces in the offering it's worth your time to have a quick look.
You never know , you might see something that strikes your fancy and in these quiet times worth the effort.
That said I did notice one lot , # 394 , Caucasian rug , pre-sale est.£ 15-2000.00 that maybe something , or not !
Quiet .

Via Con Dios , Kenny Stabler , # 12 .
One of the greatest “Oakland Raider”, Quarterbacks .
Super bowl 11 winner , your accomplishments will stand the test of time !
Silence runs amok !
Out of town visitors .
Morning road trip .
Rosebowl Sunday !
The lack of fresh news continues but commerce moves in a positive direction so that in its self is something !
