Lot Essay

The design of this carpet is a direct copy of a late Classical Caucasian carpet, formerly in the Hapsburg collection, now in the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna (Friedrich Sarre and Hermann Trenkwald, Altorientalische Teppiche, Österreichisches Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Vienna/Leipzig, 1926/28, vol.1, pl.42). Other PETAG carpets displaying the same design and of similar size, have sold at Christie's, London on 25 April 2002, lot 63 and 13 October, 2005, lot 79.
