About Antique Carpets
Antique carpets are comprised of rugs that are at least one hundred years old. They are typically made with hand-spun wool and natural dyes, which have a luminous surface and give it the illusion of depth. Rugs that are 50 to 99 years old are referred to as semi-antique. Oriental & Persian carpet designs of the 20th century began to change as Western influence expanded across the Middle East. The native cultural designs began to lose their authenticity and as such their ability to maintain traditional designs diminished along with their ability to preserve traditional master craft techniques. If you believe you might have an antique rug we advise you to get it appraised by a qualified expert. Tips for Collectors
Antique rugs are made of natural fibers such as, wool, cotton and silk. New rugs are made from a variety of fibers including synthetic and natural fibers such as, mercerized cotton, faux silk often called "Art Silk", silk blends and artificial fibers such as, olefin.
- If the rug has signs of wear but remains vibrant; this is an indication of a real antique.
For insurance purposes you should always obtain a Certificate of Authenticity from the dealer, which should include the size, origin, age, style, materials, knot density, condition and estimated retail value.
- An authentic Oriental rug will not have a brand name associated with it and it will not be hand-tufted.
