A EXTREMELY FINE MASSIVE SILK QUM CARPET, CENTRAL PERSIA
This lot will be removed to an off-site warehouse … Read more PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN (LOTS 1-10) Italian Taste, Eastern Style Beginning in the second Century BC, the Silk Route was an interconnecting web of 4000 miles of trade routes from Europe to the Far East. Along this route were traded philosophies, religions and technologies as well as silks, spices, porcelain and many other goods. The silk route was responsible for the blending of cultures, fashions and styles, as goods were made in one part of the world to suit the tastes of buyers in far-off lands. Building on the success of the carpets offered in our first Style & Spirit sale of the year, the selection of carpets in this sale, many from a private collection, exemplifies the merging of Italian taste and Persian and Turkish skill. While they are certainly wonderful furnishing pieces, they are also works of art in their own right, combining high quality silks and wools, beautiful designs and exquisite craftsmanship This is an unparalleled opportunity to bring a touch of Silk Route elegance to your own home.
