SOLOMON’S COLLECTION & FINE RUGS Moves To New Quincy Location
THE QUINCY SUN· THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2003
Solomon’s Collection & Fine Rugs, formerly located in Boston’s Back Bay, recently moved to Quincy at 809 Hancock St.
The firm features a large collection of handmade wool and silk carpets from around the world, and antiques. Solomon Mojtabai, a retired general and vascular surgeon, established the company in 1987 as a result of his lifelong passion for Oriental carpets.
Originally known as Newbury Street Rugs, named for the Newbury Street, Boston, location, the name was changed in 2000 to Solomon’s Collection & Fine Rugs.
The new name reflect the growth of the business which by that time had added fine antiques to the collection.
At the Quincy location are thousands of quality carpets imported from Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Tibet, Turkey, the Caucasus and other countries. They have been assembled in numerous designs, colors and sizes for easy viewing.
Additional services provided include appraisals, buying and trading of antique rugs, restoration and repair as well as professional cleaning.
At the recent official ribbon-cutting and grand opening party, guests toured the facility and learned about rugs and the various countries of origin.
A portion of the collection may be viewed on the Solomon’s website at www.solomonrugs.com.·
