Antique Persian Heriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: First Quarter of the Twentieth Century – Here is an exciting and beautifully woven antique Oriental rug – an antique Heriz carpet that was woven in Persia during the early decades of the twentieth century. Characterized by a rich and complex design, this antique Heriz carpet exemplifies the tribal qualities that have made the style so enduringly popular. A series of elaborate borders surround the piece, each featuring intricate floral and vine scroll detail work. Inner and outer borders of a pale blue surround a primary border of a much darker blue, which is resplendent with intriguing, geometric floral elements. These are joined together by rectilinear vine scrolls, the complexity of which reinforce the sophistication of this antique Persian┬ácarpet. Within the field, corner pieces of a soft blue give way to an ivory field. Though only occupying a relatively small portion of the carpet, this ivory portion stands out prominently, its ornamentation a brilliant contrast to its bright hue. Dominating the carpet is a monumental central medallion of red, layered with black and ivory. A series of compelling, abstract details dance throughout the medallion, all of which effectively tie in the medallion with the remainder of the composition. A beautiful and exciting work, this antique Persian Heriz carpet is a truly compelling example.
