Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: Late 19th Century – A grand star medallion palmette finials rules the field of this dazzling antique Serapi Heriz rug. The deep blue medallion is surrounded by a dynamic mesh of abstract vines and flowers on a soft red field, and by vine-filled stepped corner-pieces in khaki tan. The main border on this antique rug consists of a crisply rendered ‘turtle’ vine-scroll design set against a soft blue ground that provides the perfect form for the field design. Heriz carpets are famed for their powerful geometric sensibility, but this Persian carpet is also notable for the precise elegance of its drawing.
