Fair Market Value:

Hi Stan, Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Despite the small size of this carpet, it is unlikely it was used as a prayer rug, not least because of its size and the composition of deer in a landscape, which was a more European style subject. It is likely this small mat was made for the export/tourist trade rather than for use in Turkey, where it was made. Despite its later date of manufacture, the quality of silk Hereke rugs is quite high and warrants a high secondary-market price. Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is: A vintage export style Hereke silk circular carpet made in Turkey, 20th Century Of circular form, the central cream/gray ground centering two deer in a landscape within a blue medial border with stylized decorative motifs, with in a rosette and cream selvedge border. Label on the back reads "CH-Hereke / 081x081 = 66 / silk on silk / price 8976 / No 1741." 36-inches diameter CONDITION: This small carpet is in good condition; value assumes no stains, tears, repairs or odors. PROVENANCE: Unknown $ 1,000-1,500* *represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary. Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, or questions/concerns, and thank you again for using Mearto. ~ Delia
