Buying Antique Rugs

Before you set off to buy your favorite antique Persian rugs, you should know that
antique rugs were woven at least eighty years ago. They fall into this category based
on their age and not their origin, design, color or the material used to manufacture them.
While the minimum age for a rug to be considered antique is eighty years, the maximum has
no limit. In general, the greater the age of the rug, the higher its pricing – similar to a
fine bottle of wine. And it’s not just that the rug was made long ago, but the piece of
traditional history your fine antique rug carries with it that gives it this greater value.
Different factors should be considered when planning to buy antique oriental rugs which hail
from different countries and varied cultures.
