Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a chinese handknotted rug of the mid 20th century, depicting a court lady and her servant looking out of a pavillion´s window .The pavillon is surrounded by foliage, flowers and rocks. The estimate is based on similar rugs sold at auction. The rug in your possession is of good quality and the colours are brilliant and not faded. A beautiful piece. As always "asking prices" in the trade can be higher and vary.

Nah. This rug was appraised at three grand by an art dealer in 1975, so no.

My estimate is based on recent auction results for similars. 1975 was a different era, unfortunately prices have dropped.
