Beauty and rarity determine the value of antique carpets as much as their colouring and traditional pattern, which is passed down from generation to generation. From autumn 2010 onwards, the Dorotheum will be holding regular auctions of carpets.

The gamut of our assortment includes Oriental carpets as well as carpets from the Caucasus and Anatolia, Turkmenistan, Iran and India. Additionally, you will also find a large selection of carpets from Europe, including the Netherlands, France and Austria.
