Hello. My name is Robert Mosby. I have been in the antique rug business since the 1970’s having learned my trade from an old Armenian master Richard Markarian in Cincinnati ,Ohio.
In my 50 years in business I have travelled the USA and destinations around the world looking for antique carpets, tapestries essentially any woven piece to add to my shop. I have an appreciation and knowledge developed from years of collecting and studying these pieces.
Most of the Baluch rugs we sell are from the first half of the 19th century that have recently found their way into the marketplace in Peshawar, Pakistan. We have an agent there who is on the outlook for them to ship to us periodically when he has collected about 100 pieces. With the recent troubles in the region, these rugs are harder for us to obtain and we are happy at last to receive a shipment!
I have established a good reputation. Most dealers worldwide know me by name.
Feel free to check my Company’s record of satisfied customers through the many years I have been in business. Here is a link to our seller feedback profile on eBay (our user name is mosbyrugs). EBAY FEEDBACK. Or check the Better Business Bureau of West Florida. We have an A+ rating. Here is the link. BBB Of West Florida/Robert Mosby.
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 resources.
Thanks for viewing and please feel free to address any questions you may have to me.
