Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Persian carpet. It sounds really special.
Could you very kindly attach a photo of the carpet pattern and also a close-up of the back to show the stitch count. Or let me know what it is by counting the number of stitches along an inch of a ruler.
Also, is there any damage or unraveling at the fringe or along the overcasting (the stitched edge)?
Once you have the photos in your computer, simply click on the paperclip icon (that's located just above the text box where you are typing to me) to attach them, or if you need more help, go here:
Many thanks and wait to hear,Robert.
PS. Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer, ignore them, they are automatically generated by the site (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back and forth and information gathering) and don't come from me. Thanks, Robert
Thanks, ***** ***** two photos help a lot.
Would it be possible to re-do the close up and just lay a ruler down along the line of stitching so I can get an idea of the knot count.
Also, can you photograph a larger section of the carpet showing a full quarter including the corner. Sorry, I should have explained better what I needed to see.
Thanks so much for the close-ups with the measuring tape, that's all I need on those.
By all means leave this until you are ready tomorrow. I feel badly making you move a large heavy carpet! but a quarter view of the pattern will be a great help, if you can manage it.
Talk to you tomorrow.
