From stitching to repairs. What to look for when picking a repair house and what to expect as a price if selling, for your oriental rugs.
When a heirloom item or estate needs to be estimated for its worth, hiring an accredited and proven and acclaimed expert is where to begin. Research, resources, technical education, 43 years of experience and exposure to global antiques and art markets is necessary for that ‘exact’ estimate needed. All the major auction houses, a large number of New York’s affluent families, and Fortune 500 businesses rely on Lee Drexler and her firm, Esquire Appraisals Inc., for personal treasures or high profile estate and matrimonial appraisals.
Valuable fine art, antiques, furniture, Oriental rugs, Objets d’Art, china, collectables and jewelry appraisals are all within her spectrum of interest and skill.
