Thames Oriental Carpets specialises in antique oriental rugs and tapestries and has over 20 years’ experience in collecting rare and valuable pieces from around the world. In February this year a 16th century Isfahan Persian carpet reached three times its high estimate attracting a bid of US$1.93 million at Sotheby in New York. Antique oriental rugs are now as sound an investment as gold. So there is no better time to re-evaluate your oriental rugs for insurance purposes for which a small fee is charged. See our Blog for more news about these rare and valuable pieces.
We also advise that a valuation for insurance purposes is worth having done as the costs for restoration of antique oriental rugs is becoming increasingly expensive. We prefer to visit you and see the rug personally in order to provide a comprehensive valuation and we also take rugs in for valuation at our Thames Oriental Carpets showroom.
