Austria Auction Company’s summer sale of Fine Antique Oriental Rugs XI comprises 103 lots, with estimates descending from a high of €70-90,000 for lot 58, a large blue-ground Tehran workshop carpet of circa 1900 with a dense small-scale lion-lattice also seen on Bijar ‘lion’ rugs. More beasts, this time hunting hounds and a unicorn at bay, feature on the next highest-rated piece, lot 33, a 16th-century Brussels large-leaf verdure tapestry fragment, which is estimated at €50-70,000.

A large early 19th-century herati-field medallion rug, lot 67, attributed to Saujbulag in Persian Kurdistan, is expected to fetch €22-28,000, while another such, lot 21, longer and narrower with the design on a green ground, weighs in at €20-30,000. These high-ticket lots are accompanied by a well-balanced selection of collectible 19th-century Turkish and Caucasian village rugs, Persian town and cottage industry rugs and carpets, as well as kilims and a sprinkling of Turkmen and other tribal weavings, including a desirable ‘Eagle group 2’ torba, lot 44, estimated at €15-20,000.
