Call for owners of carpets and gobelins

From March 13 to May 28, 2006 the Moravian Tapestry Manufactory with collaboration with the Valachian Regional Museum in Vsetín is holding an exhibition of the textile work created before the year 1945. The exposition will contain gobelins and carpets created under the guidence of Rudolf Schlattauer (on the picture) and Jaro Kučera.

The organizers are trying to display as many productions as possible and therefore are asking the owners of the textile pieces created in MGM during the years 1898 – 1945 to contact MGM either by phone or by email. Thank you in advance.
