"Mearto has been a great find for me as I have lots of things come through my hands with my Reclaim Company.
They have been very helpful. I think the service has been exceptional and response time impressive and will recommend them to any one.
Thank you Mearto"
"Wow I was not expecting to get that much in depth information! I never dreamed it would actually have any history behind it.
Thank you so much!"
"I am a fundraiser and routinely purchase items which are then auctioned to raise money. I have a very good eye, but occasionally need help monetizing value. I knew I had a very nice copy in original frame, but I didn't know how much it was worth. Because I do this to make money, I couldn't afford typical appraisal fees and the "free" appraisal service was useless. My Mearto appraiser did a complete, authoritative valuation so it was well worth the price.
I will be back!"

The history of collecting antique rugs and carpets has been around for centuries. In fact, King Henry VIII had several Turkish rugs in his collection. You can even see these rugs used in his many portraits with Hans Holbein. In addition to Henry VIII, other avid collectors of antique rugs and carpets were Sigmund Freud and Cornelius Vanderbilt. These references showcase the history of collecting antique carpets and rugs throughout history.
The individual history of each type of carpets and rugs are far more diverse. After all, there are several types of carpets and rugs in the market. Some of the most commonly collected types of rugs out there include Oriental Rugs, Turkish Rugs, Persian Rugs, Celtic Rugs, and more.
