9780394739571: Rugs to Riches: An Insider's Guide to Buying Oriental Rugs, Revised & Updated Edition

Rugs to Riches is an authoritative, lively, and eminently practical guide for people who want to learn the dos and don'ts of choosing handmade oriental rugs. Caroline Bosly, one of the foremost rug brokers in the world, describes the various types of rugs and their origins, explains the difference between buying new and antique rugs, and tells you how to buy a rug of any size at the best possible price. Written in a simple, straightforward style that strips away the mystique from oriental rugs, Rugs to Riches also advises you on:

Determining whether a rug is handmade or not, and whether it has been altered in any way.

Evaluating a rug's condition and determining whether the retail price is a fair one, using a simple point system.

Bargaining down the price of a rug, no matter what type of store you find it in.

Selling a rug and making a profit.

Decorating with oriental rugs and ensuring that they remain clean and in good repair.
