We recently received several antique Persian rugs from my bf's family. I'm trying to learn more about them--identification, age, value, as well as info on the technique and symbols. Any help would be appreciated.

Here's what I know: rugs were purchased in Iran by my bf's grandfather who had a rug business in Wisconsin. According to his dad, they are over 100 years old.

I am including some pictures. Please forgive the poor lighting. Any info is appreciated!
I'm also looking for good sources--books, websites, etc--to help me learn more about vintage Persians.

I think it is a Kordi Runner from west of Iran with a boteh (paisley) motif, over a hundred years old and worn in places. You have not put the size down but I assume it is around 300x90cm and in my opinion the auction price for it is £120 to £200.

The Persian Carpet by Cecil Edwards is one of the best books in the field of Persian Carpets if you can find one.
