Nagels upcoming special carpet sale “Rugs & Carpets, Ethnographic Art” will take place 24 March 2015 at 15.00 in Stuttgart.
Other highlights from a south German collection include lot 66, a Safavid silk fabric with metal-wrapped threads, lot 49, a Moghul animal carpet and lot 78, a Tabriz 20th century copy of the so called “Coronation Carpet” with medallion, animals and mythical creatures. The Safavid original from the 16th century was made in two models. One of them, known as “Coronation Carpet” was carpeted in Westminster Abbey for the coronation ceremony of King Edward VII. in 1902, and since 1949 belongs to the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum. The other model, the so called Bode-animal carpet, was purchased for the Berlin Museum of applied arts in the 1890ies by the famous German art historian Wilhelm von Bode, but burned away during World War II.
