Hey.
I was given this tapestry when living on the isle of Iona, Scotland. It appears to be very old, know one knows anything about it, so Im hoping, you can.
Its about 6"by 4" maybe more, in decent condition. Currently on the wall in my room.
Are you able to find out how old, and how much it is? also the best conditions i can keep it in?

Thank you very much

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Would you be able to submit larger images? I can see enough to know what I am looking at exactly.

In the mean time, I feel free to read these two articles:

Expertise

I have not yet come across any antique rug related questions that if I did not know I could not find the right answer for. I have been interviewed by numerous antique rug websites, blogs, and magazines and am consistently referred to as a source for information on antique rugs, carpets, and textiles.

Experience

I have been in the antique rug trade for over 13 years and deal regularly with the most well respected auction houses in the world (Sotheby's, Christies, Butterfield's & Bonham's, etc.) as well as interior designers and decorators, retail customers, and other dealers. I also purchase fine antique pieces and have traveled the world in search of the best of the best.
