Antique Oriental Rugs
Hello, My name is Robert Mosby. I always
like to know a little about the people I do business with so I thought I'd
take a moment to introduce myself.
I have been in the Oriental Rug business
since 1969. I have always operated on a wholesale "to the trade"
basis in the past, and now my wife, Holly, and I bring our World Renowned
Collection of fine antique rugs to the public.
I began my career 42 years ago in Cincinnati,
Ohio working for Richard Markarian Oriental Rugs. Since the 1930's, Mr. Markarian has
been considered to be one of the most respected names in the oriental rug community.
I was fortunate to learn my trade from an old master.
In my 43 years in
business my rugs have been exhibited in Art Museums and on the pages of such publications
as 'Hali Magazine', 'Fortune Magazine', and 'To the Trade Magazine'. I am a featured dealer on such internet sites as

We deal strictly in handmade, one of a kind
oriental rugs. We do not deal in mass produced rugs. We travel all over the world to
handpick the rugs we sell. You will see rugs on our site that are 'as good' or

the world. If we put a name or age on a rug you can be sure it will be just that. Many of
our rugs can be considered investment quality pieces.
I have established a
good reputation. Most dealers worldwide know me by name.

City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, DC, and Chicago etc because our prices are
simply more reasonable than oriental carpet dealers in those cities. We ship

Shanghai, and the EU buy and sell antique rugs from Mosby Antique Oriental
As for my business ethics...they are
simple...If you buy a rug and you don't like it for any reason, after a three day
inspection period, return it for a prompt 100% refund.
I am very knowledgeable about oriental rugs and
I'm always available to answer questions about my rugs or to offer suggestions about other
