  Most expensive carpet - world record set by a 17th Century Persian carpet

  LONDON, UK -- A Kirman 'Vase' carpet, a rare 17th Century Persian carpet, fetched $9,599,535 (6,201,250) at Christie's in London (20 times more than expected)  - setting the new world record for the Most expensive carpet.

  The previous Guinness world record for the Most expensive carpet was 2.3m for a silk Isfahan rug, thought to have been made in the early 1600s, in New York in June 2008.

   An anonymous overseas bidder bought the Most expensive carpet in the world to rapturous applause in the saleroom.

  Speaking after the record breaking sale, William Robinson, Director of the Rugs and Carpets at Christie's, said: 'This example has huge charm, subtlety and balance, which combine in a design of deceptive simplicity.'

   A spokesman added that the quality of the rug was a reflection of the great talent of the weavers of the Iranian city of Kirman, who were 'arguably the most inventive and influential of all carpet designers'.
