Case on Art Insurance Cover

I have inherited an antique rug from my great grandmother. The rug is worth Rs. 15,00,000 and it is as old as the 1800s. This rug has significance for its high value and it needs to be insured for theft and other risks. Although this is a personal collection, it can be easily insured. I then contact the art insurance company and ask them for a quote. With the premium, I insure my rug and secure it from theft, burglary, damage from fire etc.
