Customer Question

I have a client with a Navaho rug. I have done the "book" research on this rug and it seems authentic. How should I proceed from here? Can I forward photos?

Are you wanting the current market value for this? Do you know aproximate age?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am looking for current market value but need a verification that an appraisal would be in order first. Is this enough of a Navaho rug to warrant further investigation?

My client got this in the 1960's from a friend in New Mexico.

Do you mean an appraisal in person with a local appraiser?

All of these Native American Rugs have about the same avearge value. This one is from the 50-60's area so it is not an antique rug. An appraiser will charge around 200.00 per hour. Are they needing an written appraisal?
