Beautiful Antique Persian Blue Colored Heriz Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – With a volcanic color palette and strong points of contrast, this beautiful antique Persian Heriz rug is designed to establish a soothing presence.

Deep black tones add further contrast and depth by acting as outlines, leading the viewer’s eyes to the Stygian darkness at the center of the antique rug. Several petals are artfully arranged at the masterpiece’s core, breaking up the space in a tantalizing and natural way through the use of the different colors present.
