Oriental Rug Appraisals
Determine the true value of all your antique oriental rugs with Koko Boodakian & Sons!
Since rugs live under our feet they receive a lot of wear and tear over time. Burns, moths, cleaning solutions, mildew, children, and pets can cause damaging stains or tears to rugs that will decrease their value. This is why all of these factors and more are considered while properly assessing a rug’s value.
Professional rug appraisal is a very specialized field that takes years of training and hands-on experience. In addition to damage, experts also take into account the detail of design, the sheen of the rug, its size, country of origin, and any past repairs. Only the expert eye of a talented pro knows exactly what to look for when appraising the value of a rug. Our on-site appraiser, Mohammad Rafatpanah, is well respected among the antique oriental rug community for his passion, deep knowledge, and appreciation for antique rugs from all areas of the world.

Why should I get an appraisal done?
Rugs are more than just a size and a value. They tell a story. There is quite a bit of history in your rugs that is largely unknown outside of the antique oriental rug community. A professional rug appraisal will help you learn more about your rug and determine its value in the event that you need to make an insurance claim or decide to sell your rug.
Should you include your valuable rugs in your homeowner’s insurance coverage?
Your rug is a valuable work of art, and like any antique with monetary and historical value, you could have it insured. But do you know how much to insure your rugs for? If not, this is where a professional rug appraisal service can be an extremely beneficial resource. They can tell you exactly what your rug is worth and why.
Rugs are one of the first things to be damaged in the event of a flood or fire. This is why some owners choose to insure their irreplaceable antique Persian and Oriental rugs. With the rug appraisal services of Koko Boodakian & Sons, we can help turn your beautiful pieces of home decor into appreciated investments.
