C. John celebrate 50th anniversary of the Royal Warrant

Posted: 2016-04-20 13:15:33

The UK will mark Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebrations on Thursday 21 April, and 2016 is an equally significant year for BADA members C. John, who are marking the 50th anniversary of their first receiving the Royal Warrant in 1966.

It was 80 years ago that John Cohen founded his Gallery in Oxford and the company has since become synonymous with the finest works of woven art, supplying carpets, rugs, tapestries and textiles to some of the grandest houses of the world.

The thriving business soon outgrew the Oxford gallery and in 1947, Cohen opened the company’s flagship store at 70 South Audley Street, Mayfair – a prominent location amongst the worlds’ most influential antique traders.

John Cohen’s hard work and integrity helped him establish an unrivalled reputation in the trade and he soon became a supplier of carpets to the Queen, receiving the Royal Warrant in 1966, an honour that was also bestowed upon his nephew and current proprietor of C. John, Leon Sassoon, in 1978.

To this day, C. John remain the only fine carpet gallery in the world to have this privilege.

C. John has recently moved to a brand new, modern gallery in South Audley Street Mayfair, and are proud to offer rare antique carpets in impeccable condition to private buyers, collectors, interior designers and many more who cross their threshold.

Visitors throughout the month of April can also enjoy a collection of hand knotted woollen carpets from the Ningxia district and Peking during the 18th & 19th century. To arrange an appointment, call 020 7493 5288 or email gallery@cjohn.com
