At this auction house they do not care if their descriptions and representations of the items they offer up to the public are accurate. I bought a rug online from them. It was represented to be a Persian Hereke Silk Prayer Rug. They claim to be certified appraisers but don't seem to know or care that Persian rugs are from Iran and Hereke is a well known type of carpet made in Turkey. No such thing as a Persian Hereke rug. When I took it to a reputable rug dealer for cleaning, they told me it was made in China. At least it was real silk. If I had known it was Chinese I would never have bid on it. They have not offered compensation, just excuses. Avoid them if you are buying.
