Large Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Oriental Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – At the center of the antique rug, a deep blue medallion with an ivory core hovers amidst ivory and red corner-pieces, while stylized branches of vines and palmettes fill the intervening red field. A serrated leaf and rosette vine-scroll border is framed by multiple minor borders with simpler boteh vine-scrolls. Here we may detect the taste of Serapi rug weavers as well.
