Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th CenturyAntique Serapi rugs represent the finest grade of Heriz in terms of design, color, and weave, and this charming example has it all. At the center of the rich red field a cruciform medallion in blue-black and ivory floats freely with a lavish interior embellishment of sinuous vines. Undulating blue-green corner-pieces fill out the field with elaborate arabesque detail. Grand finials and dynamic branches occupy the intervening red ground. A complex ‘turtle’ vine-scroll border set against a blue-black ground provides an elegant yet dramatic frame, with minor meander vine-scroll minor borders echoing the blue-green of the corner-pieces. Perhaps the most extraordinary quality of the antique antique rug is its small scatter size in contrast to the much larger scale customary for Persian rugs of this kind.
