TAPPETI. Christie’s

Londra, 15 aprile 2010


La vendita “Oriental Rugs and Carpets” ha totalizzato £ 8,235,250 ($12,746,619 €9,345,874) con 140 lotti venduti su 246 offerti. William Robinson, Senior Director, Islamic Art, Rugs and Carpets:  “This sale was enormously enjoyable to take as auctioneer and doubles the highest total achieved in this category at Christie’s. It was led by the magnificent Kirman ‘vase’ carpet which became not only the most valuable carpet ever sold at auction but also the most expensive Islamic work of art. The sale in terms of content was the strongest at Christie’s for some years, this, coupled with a very lively market for Islamic art demonstrated this week, combined to achieve this extraordinary result. The best quality Persian town carpets are again clearly in great demand with prices powerfully driven by private buyers from a wide variety of countries.”
