Antique tribal Persian Heriz Rug, Country of origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This sophisticated, unusual antique Persian Heriz carpet exhibits an outstanding level of originality and superb pattern-making skills that follow regional traditions. Multi-part pillars created by reciprocating floral cartouches sprawl across the decorative field. Sylvan ground scrolls with delicate floral accents meander around the chestnut-brown backdrop and offset the sophisticated repeating pattern. Thickened branches with lacy decorations emerge from the warm background and seemingly grow out of the graceful ogee cartouches. These creative embellishments have a distinctive style that is well-defined and beautifully detailed with the ideal level of impact. The superb calyx-filled borders have a striking blend of sophistication and ruralism displayed in the reciprocating series of maximized calyces and bifurcated embellishments that embrace the notched rosettes. This unique style adds to the richness of the filamentous details and shows through in the quirky, angular Heriz-style decorations.
