Sloth Bear/ "Honey Bear" Rug

Submitted by adam on 9/29/04 at 11:01 AM. ( )

I was wondering if anyone had any idea as to the value of an antique sloth bear rug. This rug is in near mint condition. The rug is about 100 years old, but there is no written proof of its age. I know these animals are protected now (not endangered), so I am not sure of the legalities of selling this rug. I am more interested in an estimate of the value of the rug. Thanks

they might be able to tell you or if nothing else steer you in the right direction. If it is in mint condition like you said and that old it could be worth quite a bit.
