One fresh thing to report.
Sotheby's , NYC is staging an estate sale of the I.&A. Schorsch Coll. on Jan. 22-24 and it includes approximately 17 various oriental rugs and carpets of which 3 are Eagle Kazaks .
Nothing to get excited about but one of the Eagles looks fairly good .IMG_1358The way they did the catalogue the rugs are in panorama illustrations so if you see something you could be interested in you would need to request additional photos.
Lot # 123 , Eagle Kazak , pre- sale est. $3-5,000.00 .
Could be decent !

Sotheby's , NYC also has another sale scheduled on Jan. 22-23 titled “Important Americana” that includes 25 oriental rugs and carpets .
No real standout items in this group either and a few of them have been around the block before but still a few pretty good pieces with fairly conservative pre- sale estimates.
So it's worth a little of your time to take a quick look . Rugs start at lot #1154 .IMG_1360
One item that is not fresh to the market but the lower pre- sale estimate is very attractive.
Lot # 1163 , Eagle Gul torba , – sale est. a modest $ 3-5,000.00 .
With a substantially reduced starting point certainly could be interesting .
Then again as we all know it's not where you start but where you end up , however a chance looms on this piece !

Rosebowl Sunday !
Damp and dry !
No action unfortunately .
So the new year is off to a slow / nonexistent start at this point !?
Brilliant and adventurous days lie ahead !!!

Life drama , confusion and all the other unavoidable miseries / mysteries seem insignificant when the final journey confronts you ! , Sheik Frederich , 2016.
