Market

Ethnic textiles and tapestries usually appear in more general cultural auctions and the sales of private collections. For example, the Sotheby’s sale of The Michael and Judy Steinhardt Judaica Collection in April 2013 showcased several very valuable and historic Judaic textile pieces. One of the more notable pieces was an embroidered sabbath tablecloth from Jerusalem 1821, which sold for $137,000, far more than its $20,000 - $30,000 estimate. To demonstrate the high potential of different cultures and periods in textiles, in June 2013, a Flemish tapestry from the mid-sixteenth century sold at Christie’s New York for $99,750. Particular interest and value is added to this piece because similar pieces have attracted great attention, with one in display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In May 2013 a nineteenth-century imperial yellow silk Damask Riding Coat sold at Christie’s London for £40,000.
