Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: Early 20th Century – This superb antique Persian rug is unusual for its design and cool, earthy palette. Most antique Heriz rugs and Serapi carpets tend to have centralized designs, usually in a bold medallion format. This one, however, is graced by an allover drop-repeat design descended from classical Caucasian blossom and dragon carpets.  The interlacing vine-scroll border is, of course, classic Heriz or Serapi rug, although its suits the crisp geometric drawing of the field admirably well. But in place of the vibrant palette so characteristic of Heriz and Serapi carpets, here the coloration is reserved and autumnal, with cinnamon, apricot, and tan tones in place of the rich reds and greens. This is altogether an extraordinary antique rug by every criterion.
