May factors impact the value of a rug. A hand woven rug is always woven on a loom. Knock of rugs have many parts that are machine made. If you look at the fringe and it is knotted on, that is a sign that it is authentic and true rug. If the fringe is sewn on, this is a clue that this rug is not authentic.
On the back of the rug you will see the design if the rug was woven on a loom and is a quality hand knotted rug. If you see no design on the back then this is an indication that the rug was machine made and is not an authentic hand-woven rug.
A couple of important factors that make a rug valuable are design and color. The more harmonious the colors and the design, the more valuable.
Determining the country of origin is an important part in determining the market value of a rug along with the age of the rug. The older the rug, the more it will be worth.
Q: Who should have their rugs appraised?
A: A rug appraisal is recommended for owners of hand-knotted rugs who wish to document the value of their rugs for insurance purposes and estate planning. Appraisal information includes rug type, design, country of origin, condition, colors, size, approximate age, and market value.
Q: How is the appraisal done?
A: Experienced rug dealers are experts in determining the value of hand-knotted oriental rugs. They determine a rug's market retail value based on the rug's condition, where it is made (country of origin versus a replication), type of rug, size, design, knots per square inch and age. Staff at Azar Rug Gallery back up the appraisal with a document that is signed and sealed by the president.
