Instructions - How to Sell an Antique Rug
If you are interested in selling an antique rug, we will need the following:
1. At least three pictures (but preferably more) showing the entire carpet as well as details. You should also include pictures of the back of the rug taken as close up as possible. The pictures of the back show the structure of the rug, which is essential in evaluating its origin and quality.
2. The approximate dimensions of the rug, length and width.
3. Information regarding the condition of the rug. Does it have wear, holes, tears, or stains etc.?
4. In addition, it is extremely useful to have information concerning the provenance of the rug - where it was acquired, who owned it before you, etc. Such information can add considerably to the significance and value of a rug and may affect the decision whether or not to purchase it.
