What is my tapestry and textile worth?

This category consists of a wide range of textiles including Flemish tapestries, antique church embroidery, antique table covers, all antique needlework, embroidery, wall hangers and antique costumes. Tapestries were the ultimate status symbol during late medieval, renaissance and baroque times. They were extremely costly and functioned as a luxury item in palaces and stately homes as a decorative way to isolate large rooms from cold stone walls. Today they are rare on the market and highly valuable. The market for antique decorative textiles, church embroidery and altar covers is growing. Antique textiles that are well kept for years and maybe passed from generations to generations are sought after by collectors and even museums due to their domestic historical value and meticulous hand skill and time spent on them. It is important that these unique and valuable items are assessed by a valuation expert in order to determine the market price. The auction value of an antique piece of textile depends highly on its age, provenance and most importantly the condition. If you want to find antique textile appraisal, fill out our form in detail and send us detailed photographs of the item, including the condition problems such as stains or holes.
