Excellent to Mint original and unrestored condition. Please check out my many other quality auctions. After discussing with him that we may have to tweak it a bit because its been 40 years since it was originally comprised and has gotten nearly impossible to find weavings in excellent, let alone mint condition these days, I concluded, what the hell, why mess with a good thing. It's a standard worth sticking to!So here it is as originally written (and with permission to reprint from Tyrone, July 2020). FRAGMENT: Any portion of an entire weaving. DETERIORATED: Heavily damaged, warps exposed, selvage missing, large holes, serious fading or running, corners or areas missing. AVERAGE: Shows floor wear or small holes, some selvage damage, very minor bleeding, etc. GOOD: Above average classification may still show use, but not broken warps.
In some cases a very small hole or two or a minor selvage break or two is acceptable. EXCELLENT: No holes, no bleeding or fading, no exposed warps or serious selvage damage. MINT: This classification means that the textile is in pristine condition. NOTE: In the case of rare weavings we will up-grade the condition classification from Average to Good or from Good to Excellent, but in no case to Mint or from Deteriorated to Average condition.
