Customer Question
I have two imported...

I have two imported rugs from India, hand woven 100% wool, cream background with floral and vine patterns. If I want to sell them, how can I get them appraised? I also have a hand carved octagon coffee table by Lane Furniture purchased in 1967 measuring 48" around, how can I get it appraised?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
