          Shahkar (“masterpiece” in Farsi) is a collection of extraordinary antique Oriental rugs and tapestries curated nearly 50 years. Under the banner of our successful New York City-based wholesale and appraisal business started in November of 1972, we scoured the globe — from the Middle East to Europe to Asia — for vintage treasures. 

Applying a keen eye for design and craftsmanship, we personally selected decorative carpets and tapestries lovingly preserved and handed down through generations. Those showpieces found new life displayed in homes, movie sets and luxury hotels thanks to our strong relationships with clients and top auction houses such as Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Doyle. 

Today, the Shahkar collection includes approximately 1,000 antique carpets — most at least 75 years old — and approximately 75 tapestries dating from the 16th through 19th centuries. Additionally, we have a line of Persian style carpets fabricated in light colors for the modern palette. In keeping with our impeccable standards, every piece is in excellent condition.

New carpets are frequently added to InCollect, but we also gladly open our extensive archives to clients searching for a specific rug or tapestry.
