We were founded by Charles W. ("Jake") Jacobsen. Jake was a man of amazing interests and abilities. In his 92 years he made indelible marks as good citizen, soldier, businessman, and author. Born in Tennille, GA, Jake attended the University of Georgia, graduating in 1915. When WW I came, he enlisted in the Army and served as Captain in the artillery in France. Years later, he would see combat again in WW II as a Colonel in the Infantry. He landed at Anzio and suffered through the bitter campaign for Italy, and was one of the first American officers to enter liberated Rome.
|Jake's experiences in the rug business led him to write four books about Oriental rugs (all, unfortunately, out of print today). His Facts About Oriental Rugs (1952), Oriental Rugs, A Complete Guide (1962), Checkpoints on How to Buy Oriental Rugs (1969), and Oriental Rugs, An Updated Guide (1977) have become classics in the field. Jake firmly believed that a knowledgeable customer was the best customer; we believe the same.|
