I have a tapestry that was given to my grandmother about

Customer Question

I have a tapestry that was given to my grandmother about 1930. It's mounted on a board and attached to a wood frame in the back. Edges are starting to fray and is extremely dirty as it's never been cleaned. My question is-is it worth enough to send it to a tapestry restorer? I have pictures if you would like to see it. It's about 48" long and 24" tall.

Hi,

These generally sell for under $100 in good to excellent condition. The cost to restore would exceed the value of this piece, so it would be a sentimental investment vs financial if done.

Why do they sell for so much online then if it's only worth $100 at best?
