This antique Heriz rug was woven in Iran in the early 20th century. The virtues of the antique Heriz carpets are found in their design style and color.
The signature of a Heriz is the large medallion with over scale corner pieces filled with angular oak leaves and foliage, which is both bold and captivating. Older antique Heriz rugs, echoing the famous antique Serapi carpets from the same district, tend to be more spacious in design.
This unique Heriz rug has a distinctive center medallion with a gentle balance of red, blue and ivory colors.
