Peter Pap at The Levant Oriental Rugs:
We've recently purchased the entire inventory of The Levant Oriental Rugs at 5450 College Avenue, Oakland, CA from the estate of Albert Keshishian. Albert's father founded The Levant in 1927 and the inventory represents a time capsule of 92 years of their combined collecting. We will be on site at their huge Rockridge location liquidating the Keshishian collection. Pieces include distinctive collectible quality Persian and Caucasian antiques as well as vintage rugs from the 1930s to the 1980s.
