We serve Houston, Dallas, Texas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, California, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Florida, Chicago, Pennsylvania
The Oriental rug business thrives on making people believe that Oriental rugs keep their value, or even increase in value, over time. To be clear, we personally believe that antique rugs are underestimated as a form of art. Indeed, the sale value of rare museum carpets is catching up with other art forms. But the fact is, like most other goods, the resale value of a new Oriental rug is often much lower than its original price.
Simply contact us, Provide a few pictures and any information you have about the rug.
Our fee for a standard written appraisal is $45. This includes:
1. A detailed assessment of the rug's origin, age, condition, quality and style;
2. An estimate of the replacement value of the rug for insurance purposes;
3. A separate estimate of the resale value of the rug; and
4. Advice for selling or keeping the rug.
We provide a personalized service. All the appraisals are handled by Oriental rugs experts with over ten years of experience, and are completed within 3 to 5 days.
Watch out for appraisers who seek ulterior business beyond the actual appraisal, such as consignment at specific auctions, or cleaning and restoration. This may not be your best option. Most appraisers of Persian rugs estimate only the replacement value of your rug. While appropriate for insurance purposes, these appraisals can be very misleading when it comes to selling your rug. At Serur's Antique Rugs, we buy and sell Persian rugs on a daily basis and we run a marketplace for privately owned Oriental rugs. This gives us unique expertise to appraise both the replacement and resale value of your Oriental rug.
