Kerman Rug From Iran Sells For $7.5 Million

360-year old Kerman carpet will sell for only $7,500,000. It is almost 6' x 9' with cotton foundation and wool-silk pile. It will be $140,000 per square foot. It is being sold by Sotheby's in New York in June. William Clark, a billionaire industrialist who also became a senator, purchased it from a dealer in Paris while on a tour of Europe in 1925.
