Antique Room Size Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 – This awe-inspiring antique Persian Heriz rugs displays a host of powerful angular decorations arranged in a sophisticated all over repeating pattern that retains a rustic village-like appearance. The same angular features that give regional medallion rugs such extraordinary power are leveraged to create a dazzling, surprisingly complex repeating pattern accompanied by prototypical turtle-and-vine-scroll borders. Arching saz leaves with articulate angles and dactyl appendages artfully emerge from floral focal points and unfurl around lozenge-shaped centerpieces. Star-like rosettes and floriferous lozenges fill the negative space between the bracketed leaves. These clever compartments produce a wealth of complex counter-change shapes, including hourglasses and stars that emerge as the kaleidoscopic elements change focus. Sharp bi-color shading gives each leaflet a dimensional appearance that’s emphasized by the contrasting powder blue outlines and snippets of ivory ground that expressively peek through on this beautiful Persian rug.
