Hire A Rug Appraisal Expert
Valuing antique rugs is a slippery slope. The Rug Gallery. a San Clemente based business specializes in selling and appraising fine antique rugs for insurance companies and estate planners throughout Orange County. Since antique rugs vary so much in quality, and tastes are always changing in terms of interior design, which also impacts demand, it’s almost impossible for the average individual to research the true value of an antique rug on their own. Leave to experts like us to determine the value of your rug.
Reputable rug dealers get calls every day from people with unrealistic expectations about what their grandmother’s antique rug is worth. They know their grandmother purchased the rug years ago, and think it’s worth a certain amount since they saw what seemed like a similar rug offered for sale at that price. But the size, dyes used in manufacture, and design all play a part in determining value, and similar-looking rugs may actually turn out to be very different when examined closely.
Our Rug Appraisals focus on the values of antique rugs, semi antique rugs, and new rugs including modern contemporary and traditional.
