Last June, this 17th century rug was purchased for $33.7 million at Sotheby’s (a New York auction), that’s roughly three times more than our runner up and roughly six times more than it was estimated to go for. This piece is believed to be a product of Kirman, an area of Persia famous for its talented rug designers and history in rug making. Measured at approximately 8-feet-9-inches by 6-feet-5-inches. this isn’t just a rug, but also an antique. Considering the price it sold for, everyone can agree – this piece is a work of art that probably won’t be seeing the bottom of a foot anytime soon.
