Today, the recognition of the very rarest, well-preserved rugs of this period has dramatically increased. In the past five years, the record price paid for a single antique Oriental rug has risen from $4 million to $9.5 million in 2010. Then, in June 2013, a stunning 17th-century Kirman rug sold at Christie’s auction for $33.7 million, over three times the previous record, heralding the arrival of Oriental rugs into the upper echelon of art collecting.
