Restoring old lion and tiger rugs?

    Hey folks,
    I recently got a lion rug. I already have a tigerskin rug, so now I have two well-worn century-old big cat rugs with mounted heads. I was toying with the thought and, while I can't afford anything at the moment, I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for finding a taxidermist who might be able to do restorations on them? I'm wondering what general price would be along with if it's worth it to send them to someone "close by" or someone "the best."

    I have restored two antique tiger rugs in the past and had mary hilliard-krueger in arizona do them for me. Excellent work! She's the only 1 I could find to do restorative work on old skins like this.
