Extensive knowledge, built over the years being in the rug trade, has given our team the ability to properly appraise your Oriental or vintage rug. Padding’s vary, and selecting the right one is important.
We provide official appraisals for insurance companies and the public alike. We stay current on global market conditions that affect the value of individual rugs. We begin our analysis with the origin and age of the rug, and then evaluate color, design, craftsmanship and current condition. We will provide you with a full report of our findings, with a calculated value. If it has been over 10 years since you had an appraisal, it also may be to your interest to get an updated appraisal as your piece may have dramatically increased in value.
An appraisal is necessary to identify rugs and answer questions about origin, age and value. They are helpful for insurance and estate purposes because many Oriental rugs increase in value as they age. The changing value over time means that an updated appraisal is helpful to insure that your investment carpets are well protected.
