Description and value or worth

Hi Henry,

.

I cannot tell you what the rug is, I cannot tell by the image if this is a wool hand tied rug or a silk rug, if it is hand done or machine done. Can you look to see if there is a label on the back.

Do you have a rug expert on. Just answer

Henry

We all do rugs but , we have to have something to go on, since we cannot see this we cannot tell what age it is, we cannot tell if it is hand done or machine done, we cannot tell anything about it. We have to have the customer give us details so we know what to look for when looking for a value. To me it looks like a Mid Century Modern, 20thC Wool Rug with a Floral Spray Design. Would that description be good for you? If so I can find a value based on that.

ok

Hello Henry
.

To view the answer, you will need to be logged in to the Just Answer web site from your computer. You cannot respond or send messages to the expert via emails.


.

The Mid Century Modern, 20thC Hand Made Wool Rug with a Floral Spray Design has an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $3,850.00-4,995.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )


If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from. You can sell in your local area or a larger city near you with Craigslist, it is free, and when they item sells the buyer picks it up.


You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias, which is on the same scale of Rubylane.


There is Amazon and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer or antique or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.


If I can be of any further help, please feel free letting me know. If there is a problem with my answer please feel free communicating this to me ( with reply to expert button )any problem can be resolved.
