A very rare and wonderful find, dating to around the 1940's.

Older Tibetan Tiger rugs are very hard to come by, there are only around 200 known antique examples. This is the only Mid Century one we have seen and it is a beauty. An exceptional piece of design in superb condition. 

The wool is soft and lustrous (though the piece is probably too good to use on the floor, it certainly hasn't been at any point in it's history) and the vegetable dyes are strong and bright. There is some small old moth damage (around the top edge of the blood moon, see images) and light soiling around the Tigers front legs. This is minor and doesn't detract. If you want, we can get this professionally cleaned at cost (around £75).

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Sheffield

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
