In the video, he explains the history and characteristics of Oriental rugs woven from the 13 th century through modern day reproductions. Level 1 “Museum-level” rugs (13 th through 18 th century) are held primarily by royal families and in museum collections. The best 19 th century rugs in Level 2 (“High-Collectible”) and Level 3 (“Connoisseur-Caliber”) are considered the prime targets for collectors and connoisseurs, art objects whose values have risen steadily since the late 20 th century. Level 4 (“High-Decorative,” late 19 th and the turn of the 20 th century) are usually used in elite home décor. Carpets in Levels 5 and 6 are by and large reproductions, made with chemical dyes, and, while decorative, have virtually no investment value.
