What's My Oriental Rug Worth?

Would you like to know the value of your antique Persian rug or that small rug adorning your hallway? Our carpets and rug specialists will give you an online appraisal, including the item’s market value, subject matter and/or decorative style as well as where it was made. Exceptional carpets, rugs, and runners have always been synonymous with wealth and beauty which might be one of the reasons these items maintain such a high re-sale value. If you'd like to get a carpet and rug valuation from our online specialist, simply upload a photograph and provide us with all the details you know about the item.

First of all, let's set the parameters for evaluating what your oriental rug, Persian rug, antique Oriental rug or hand knotted area rug is worth! Rugs are a commodity. As such, price is based on many factors including:

  • Knot Density (number of knots/nodes per inch)
  • Materials Used (Silk , Wool, cotton, etc)
  • Design Elements (Flower design, geometrical, etc)
  • Colours, Blending, and Dye types (Vegetable dye, chrome dye, etc)
  • Age
  • Condition of rug
  • Demand & Availability
  • Country of origin (Persia, India, French, Pakistan, China ,etc)

Benefit of Valuation:

  • To find out the true value of your rug
  • To gather the right information about your rug for when you want to sell it
  • Insurance payout/estimates
