Case study on Restoration-3
Antique Farahan rug circa 1860,Size Of The Rug Is 14’X25’.
It was all hand woven in Iran
More than 20% of the rug was completely damaged as seen in the picture. This rug was a family heirloom passed to the Prominent Attorney family from their grandfather. The rug used to be under his desk, water over time leaked from a potted plant and it was never detected for a long period of time, when it was examined, a large part of the rug was completely destroyed.
Abrahams was asked to explore the possibility of 100% restoration of the rug which needed 2 months of preparation in selecting the appropriate yarn and materials, etc. We were able to estimate the work to be complete in 18 months. The rug was earlier appraised for more than $200,000 and then after damage it had no value.
However, the agreement was to restore the rug to 100% in perfect condition which was achieved in 11 months, Our clients were extremely happy with the job.
