What we appraise

Our focus is oriental rugs, tapestries, and textiles

We appraise the broad classification recognized as hand made oriental rugs and related textiles. These rugs originate in an area that spans the globe from the northern coast of Africa to the Eastern coast of China. This area includes Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Eastern Europe, the countries of the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Kashmir, Nepal, Tibet, and China.

Our specialty is placing rugs in a specific context that includes geographic origin, age, method of construction and relative quality. An understanding of historical trends in producing countries allows us to address this decorative art form from a broad perspective. Experience allows us to comment on issues related to connoisseurship.

Consultation and appraisals are designed to enable those receiving the information to make informed decisions. Advice related to the potential for conservation, restoration or repair is provided upon request.
