A c.1900 antique Beshir rug

Antique Beshir rugs, woven by the Beshir tribe of Turkmenistan in Central Asia, have a distinctive weaving style in a region where most rugs can be recognised by their so called elephant foot patterns and deep blues and reds.

This stylish Beshir  has a remarkable crisp drawing and a faded grey colour field complementing the overall monochrome drawing, framed by eight artistic borders. The pomegranate design in the field symbolises properity and fertility. In good practical condition, still retaining its fringes and borders on all four sides, a remakable feature for a rug dating c.1900.  A timeless example to complement a wide variety of settings.

Gallery Yacou is a family owned business run by Robin Yacoubian and his father, Ezekiel, and has been in the family for over four generations specialising in antique, decorative and contemporary carpets.

We passionately believe in the importance of choosing the right rug for each individual room, and that the rug not only complements the space but adds depth and soul to it.

With our broad depth of knowledge and collective experience, we are able to advise our clients on the various options we have in our collection that would complement the various spaces.

We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. Some of the projects for which we have provided rugs include grand listed buildings, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and residential homes.

We have just recently relocated from our showroom on the Fulham road to our studio/workshop in North London.

We are members of the antique dealers associations, BADA and LAPADA, and an Industry Partner of BIID, the British Insititute of Interior Design, and exhibit annually at the BADA & LAPADA Fairs. Please email us using the enquiry form opposite, if you would like a complimentary ticket to any of these Fairs.
