Dear folks –
This email announces the post of a virtual version of a Textile Museum “Rug and Textile Appreciation Morning” program given on February 19, 2011 by Hassan Beheshti on the topic “Beautiful Antique Rugs of Persia .”
As I will say again in the post, Hassan is a Washington , D.C. collector and dealer, with a shop in the heart of Georgetown . Hassan and Wendel Swan conducted this program together, but press of business has prevented Hassan from providing descriptions and comments in this virtual version. These are provided, here, to some extent from notes taken for me in the room, but more usually by Wendel himself

I want to thank Hassan for being willing for me to fashion and share a virtual version of him program with you. A large thanks, too, to Wendel, for providing needed descriptions and commentary, and for editing this virtual version, generally
I hope you enjoy this post, perhaps, meeting some old, Persian “friends” in it.
