No reserve at Austria Auction Company, Vienna, 22 August 2017

Austria Auction Company and Udo Langauer’s busy schedule of sales of Antique Collector Rugs continues on Tuesday 22 August at 5pm at the Palais Breuner, Singerstrasse 16, in Vienna, Austria, and online on Liveauctioneers. What distinguishes the 159 lots this evening sale is that the wide variety of rugs and bags are all offered without reserve prices, and with online starting bids (not estimates) in the €20-€100 range. All that means, however, is that nothing will remain unsold, and it is expected that the better pieces on offer, including a Saryk Turkmen Main Carpet with the Temirjin göl, an Afshar boteh design mafrash face, and a dated Talish long rug, illustrated below with other selected potential highlights, will fetch many times those enticing opening prices.
