Navajo rugs and Oriental rugs are so specialized that you need a qualified, credentialed appraiser.
Please contact us for charges. (520-790-1871) Email firstname.lastname@example.orgA written appraisal would be necessary for insurance purposes, claims settlement, donation, equitable distribution of assets, estate settlement or documentation for future uses. In a written appraisal, I document each rug and I note the origin, category, type or regional area as well as the construction and materials and the condition of each rug with specifics. Included is a photo, a description of the design and a list of the number of colors along with other pertinent information including the age of the rug. I also look for comparable sales and include those as well. Depending on your needs and the items themselves, I usually base the valuation on the current replacement value (most typically it is the US retail market) as that is usually the most useful figure. A separate computer generated page for each rug is provided along with a transmittal letter that explains the type of value and how I arrived at it. All are bound in an 8 1/2 x 11 inch booklet and mailed to you. I keep the digital photos, notes and a digital copy of the appraisal so a new original copy can be produced if needed in the future. Nothing is discarded so that no one can rummage through the trash cans to discover who you are and what you have. For your security, all the appraisal work is done in my office and no part of it is done by anyone other than myself. The appraisals that I provide are incontrovertible, follow USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) and ISV (International Valuation Standards) protocols and will hold up under any scrutiny.
I now offer certified written appraisals using your photos and information that you can send via e-mail or regular mail. This is particularly appropriate when geographic distance is an issue.
I am also available to travel to your city for on-site appraisals. Please call to make arrangements.
$44.00 for up to 2 rugs and $17.00 for each rug thereafter. Payment can be made with Paypal in advance (account name: email@example.com) or Visa, Mastercard, Discover card in advance by phone.In lieu of a written appraisal, I can provide a verbal appraisal using your photos. A verbal appraisal would be appropriate if you are considering selling the rugs, are inventorying your assets or are simply curious. An overall photo of each rug and a close-up of a corner would be all that I would probably need aside from the approximate measurments of each rug and your phone number. Upon examination of the photos, I can call you to discuss the rugs, providing much of the same information as in the written appraisal along with how the rug or the rugs' design might fit into history. I can also advise as to how you might best sell your rugs and what you might expect to net if that is what you are considering. The cost for a verbal appraisal is
Please understand that a verbal appraisal is not an "e-mail appraisal." That is, it does not include an e-mail review of our conversation. That would fall under the category of a written appraisal whereby I provide detailed documentation. Please contact me with any questions. (520-790-1871) Email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are looking only to determine the authenticity of a rug, I can do that by way of viewing photos in the same way as a verbal appraisal. I can determine if the rug is authentic, if it is a fake and I can determine the true origin of the rug. Upon viewing the photos, I can call you or, if you prefer, you can call me. The cost for authentication is $44.00 for up to 2 rugs and $17.00 thereafter.
