Oriental Rugs and Carpets
Featuring The Collection of Joan and E. B. "Ned" Long
Joan and Ned began collecting rare Turkoman rugs and Soumac bags in Akron, Ohio in the 1970s. Their enthusiasm led them to be active members of the Cleveland Rug society, and to be among the first organizers of the American Conference on Oriental Carpets (ACOR). Over 60 rugs will be offered from their famed collection, many of which have been publicly exhibited or published. Rugs from two additional collectors will also be included in the July 18 auction.
