What We Look For
Nazmiyal Auctions takes vintage and antique rugs on consignment. Before sending us your rug for sale, please take a look at our outline of rugs we’re looking for:
- Generally, the older the better. Most of our vintage and antique rugs are 50 years or older.
- We’re always on the lookout for unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. This means we don’t take new program pieces.
- Our auction customers are looking for vintage and antique rugs, and those are what sell the best.
- We encourage you to bring the rug to our New York City showroom if you’re able; just make sure to make an appointment first.
- You can also reach out to us for an estimate and have a third party bring the rug to us at your own expense.

How to Sell to Nazmiyal
If you’ve established that you have a rug you want to sell to Nazmiyal, we have some guidelines you should stick to when sending us the rug info. Please include:
- The dimensions of the rug (length and width)
- The condition of the rug – How much wear does it have? Does it have any holes, stains, or tears? and other relevant condition information.
- Any information you may have regarding provenance of the rug. This can include where it was acquired, who owned the rug before you, etc. Provenance information is crucial when we are deciding whether or not to buy the rug.
- Finally, please include at least three pictures of your rug. Show the entire carpet as well as the details. It’s also important to include a close-up picture of the back of the rug.
