Description from user:

I have an approximate 9x12 will rug. Had water stains and all but some browning in one corner have been removed. Had it cleaned professionally in a rug bath method not steamed. I am wanting to know the value of the rug.

Purchased off local listing site from original owner. Was stored in garage for years. Couldn't remember where purchased but he paid several thousand about 2 decades ago.

The market for these rugs has changed and the price he paid was likely a retail value; keep in mind that the values Mearto provides are fair-market, for auction purposes and which are typically at least 1/2 if not 1/4 of retail prices.
This rug combines Chinese/Asian and European/Aubusson elements.
