Asian Art In London – Zadah’s Exhibition of Antique Eastern Rugs And Textiles
Antique Eastern Rugs And Textiles
Earlier this month, we held our ‘Eastern Treasures’ Exhibition, showing a unique selection of antique rugs and ancient textiles from the East.
We exhibited an exclusive selection of antique rugs and textiles, all connected through their Eastern origins – unique historical pieces from Japan, China, and India, to name but a few. You can see a fine example of Japanese craftsmanship, an 18th/19th Century Japanese Kesi in our blog. View our collection for other Eastern Rugs and Eastern Textiles.
Some of the antique eastern rugs were displayed for the very first time in the Zadah gallery. The Eastern Treasures exhibition took place as part of the Asian Art in London Event. Asian Art in London has been held since 1998 – a ten day event featuring the leading UK dealers and auction houses. Exhibitions are held at a select list of dealers in antique textiles, while auction houses like Sotheby’s, Bonham’s and Christie’s hold gallery talks and auctions, featuring antiques from the East which span 5,000 years of history.
Visitors who came to London during the week had the opportunity to view some of the best Asian Art in the world, from Imperial porcelain to contemporary art, in gallery selling exhibitions and auctions, together with lectures and symposia by London’s major museums. Asian Art in London, now in its 14th year, has an established reputation as one of the most important Asian art events on the international art calendar. Zadah are privileged to have taken part in the Asian Art in London exhibition for a number of years, showing select pieces from our collection - which itself contains pieces from all over the world – Eastern Textiles, European Tapestries, African Pieces, Islamic Antiquities and more, pieces covering almost 2000 years of history.
On the 3rd, we held an invitation-only opening for the Exhibition (we extended an invitation to the visitors to our website, perhaps you viewed the Exhibition – we would like to know what you thought), attended by dealers, antiques experts and textile historians, to name but a few.
Below, you can see a series of photographs from the opening, featuring some of our wonderful Eastern rugs – and some of our wonderful guests.
