Jim Dixon was driven to collect rugs of significance and quality. Age and artistry mattered much more than condition to Dixon. The collection of nearly 2,000 rugs and textiles is one of the finest ever assembled. Skinner is proud to present his collection which includes pieces ranging from rare and valuable Ming era Imperial Palace carpets to border fragments from the so-called “Golden Triangle” group. Many of Dixon’s pieces are at least two hundred years old, and some are much older. There’s something for everyone in the Dixon collection. Collectors of Kurdish, Anatolian, Turkmen, Caucasian, Chinese, Tibetan, and East Turkestan rugs will surely be impressed by the depth of offerings from the Jim Dixon collection. Some of the pieces are in excellent condition, and some are well-worn fragments, but they are all important weavings assembled by a true master.
