We would like to introduce you to Dieter Markus, Auctionata expert in Oriental carpets.
Dieter Markus first came in contact with the wonderful world of carpets at the age of 22. Since then, this fascination has never left him. At this time he lived in Frankfurt am Main – the centre of the Oriental carpet trade in Germany. The various provenances with their specific colours and patterns, the history behind each carpet, the painstaking method of manufacture – all of this awoke his interest.
Carpets were and are works of art to him.
From this time on, Dieter Markus dealt almost exclusively with Oriental carpets of all kinds – as a self-employed carpet salesman in his own shops.
After just a few years, in connection with many leading importers located in Germany he was assigned as an expert and appraiser of Oriental carpets.
From 1986 on he also became a specialist auctioneer for retail and private, a career he still pursues today.
He will always put himself out for an optimum valuation of Oriental carpets of any origin, with a great deal of joy and dedication.
Dieter Markus lives and works in Nuremberg.
