Finely Woven Antique Silk Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 19th Century – Here is a gorgeous antique rug – a carpet of Heriz origin, woven in Persia during the latter years of the nineteenth century. Characterized by its warm and soothing color palette of golds and reds as well as its classical design, this charming example is brimming with elegance and sophistication. This sumptuously elegant Heriz carpet has an allover Mina Khani pattern surrounding a small central quatrefoil medallion. The border is exceptional with its repeating pattern of birds flanking trees of life. The border continues the lovely coloration of the field – celadon, greens, pale golds, and red, which comes across especially well because of the lustrous silk pile. A masterfully crafted piece, this antique Heriz carpet is certainly a winning example of an enduringly popular style. The grey space it inhabits between completely classically composed city rugs and the radically different tribal rugs bridges the gap between two different styles, making this Persian rug a unique and distinctively well balanced composition.
