Carpets & Textiles

The Bellmans' Carpets & Textiles Department holds monthly sales as part of the Interiors Auctions and they include carpets and rugs, 18th and 19th century samplers and all types of textiles from lace to linen, bonnets to booties.

Recent highlights under the hammer include a Persian Kashan Mohtasham carpet, which was sold for £10,500 and a quantity of antique lace trimmings dating from the 17th-19th century, including a Flemish flounce (circa 1700) and a Brussels bobbin lace coat of arms of Charles Edward Stuart (late 18th century), recently realised £800.

The Textiles Department preserves the delicate intricacies of times gone by and covers centuries of textiles and sewing related items. The carpet specialists cover Persian and Oriental carpets in particular, but sell rugs and carpets of all kinds, from antique to modern.

Valuations take place both in our Sussex Saleroom and our London office on Brook Street, Mayfair, as well as 'pop-up' valuation days across the country. Preliminary estimates can also be provided via email and we are delighted to arrange home visits.
