Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This exquisite antique Persian Serapi rug is an archetypal representation of the local style with its well-defined octofoil medallion, saturated earth-tone color scheme and enigmatic floral grotesques. Exceptional turtle-and-vine scroll borders, which feature one of the area’s most enduring and iconic patterns, enclose the boldly decorated field and complement the fiery brick-red hues that are featured in the lavish medallion. Bold inset pendants with intensely serrated petals make a dramatic incursion into the buttery white field while complementing the contorted vine scrolls and angular floral motifs that decorate the ornate spandrels and the stark ivory-colored field surrounding the central medallion. This striking antique Persian rug is a timeless representation of the savage botanical motifs and unbridled style that weavers in Northwest Persia capture so effectively.
