Textile 2 of 2  
Not sure if you can help me as I could not find any category with respect to textiles in general.

I was given this framed piece of fabric, I have not removed it from the frame but it feels very thin.  I have no problem removing it from the frame if I need to but wanted to make sure I would not risk damaging it if I did.

If you are not able to give me any information would you have any suggestions on who or where I should go to get additional information, I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

Answer
Hello,

Unfortunately, I would need to see much better images of this textile to be able to assist you. My guess is that you are looking for some sort of estimated value - right?

It looks like a machine made piece that was printed onto the textile - which is probably why is states that it has been "Engraved" as opposed to "Woven by".

If this is the case, then the value will only be a "decorative" on and probably around a few hundred dollars.

Hope I was helpful :)

Warm regards,

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.
