The new year picks up where the old year left off , very quiet as far as fresh rug world news goes.
Zilch , Nada , nothing happening !
Substantial rain and problems all day !
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 .The 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 .
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 !
Lemmy' s big send off is today at the “Rainbow bar and Grill” in Hollywood !!!
Adios , my friend and thanks for your legacy , it will live forever !
See you on the other side !
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.
