I recently inherited a quite large (14'x9') Chinese rug (image here
) that I would like to sell. It was appraised for $5800, and I know that I'll be very lucky if I get even half that. I've contacted all or most of the dealers in the Washington DC metro area, and none are interested. Cragislist hasn't resulted in any non-scammer bites, and even putting a classified ad in the Washington Post has failed. I'd take it to a furniture consignment store, but am not aware of any that are operating in the area. An auction house estimated that it would fetch less than $1,000, and I'd really like to get more than that if possible.
