Christie’s offers a range of hand-woven rugs and carpets dating from the 15th century to the mid-20th century. Over the past decade we have led the market in this category, establishing world auction records for European, Indian, Persian, Turkish and Chinese carpets.
Highlights from recent years include rare and exceptional carpets from private collections, such as the Alice de Rothschild Kirman ‘Vase’ Carpets; the late Peter Lehmann-Bärenklau collection; the Vanderbilt Mughal Star-Lattice carpet; the Comtesse de Béhague Kirman ‘Vase’ carpet; and the Doris Duke silk Isfahan rug.
