The Most Expensive Rug in The World
In June 2013 this antique Persian rug sold for almost $34 million at auction in Sotheby’s, New York City. This is the highest price ever achieved for a rug at auction and has earned the title of the most expensive rug in the world. It was woven in the seventeenth century and thought to be of Kerman origin. In the auction catalogue, the rug was described as ‘sickle-leaf, vine scroll and palmette ‘vase’-technique carpet. These antique Persian Vase carpets are extremely desirable as demonstrated by the incredible price fetched for this beautiful piece. Prior to this, the most expensive rug sold at auction was the ‘The Comtesse de Behague vase carpet, sold for $9.6 million. This rug was sold at Sotheby’s, Kings Street, London in April 2010. Rare antique rugs have seen their prices increase dramatically over the last few years.
