Hi Mr. Omri, I have had this wall tapestry for the last 15 years. I found it in the attic of an old house I remodeled. It had an old frame on it that was in bad shape but it was not made of wood or metal. On the back there is a stamp that says France. There is a couple of small flaws but the clarity is awesome for being so old. Can you please get me a year and maybe value. Thank Much ken the tapestry measures 19"x 52"

Answer
Hi Ken,

I hope you are doing well and thank you for reaching out. These types of Tapestries were manufactured mostly in France and Italy during the middle part of the 20th century. They were machine made pieces and it was a huge production. As such, they are not worth much (probably only a few hundred on the retail end).

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.
