Magnificent red Background Large Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1900 – This antique Persian Heriz Serapi rug is a beautiful and exciting example of Northwest Persian rug weaving.  This magnificent antique Persian rug features a bold geometric design with a classic and iconic anchor medallion design.

This magnificent Serapi Heriz rug features an enrapturing reciprocating main border. This border is filled with beautifully serrated Herati leaves and bracketed rosettes in lighter colors that beautifully juxtapose and seem to almost be floating against the richer poly chrome red background color.

As is the case with the older and more interesting Serapi carpets, this piece boasts a more open approach to the design. While there is a lot of pattern in this rug, by adding more negative space between the different design elements, the weavers were able to make this piece feel open and not at all busy.

Another phenomenal aspect of this piece is its coloration. The combination of richer reds, light blues, greens and Ivories combine in the such an unexpected and harmonious way. While there are a lot of colors as well as patterns, this piece radiates joy and happiness. A sentiment to the great achievement of the weavers who created this breathtaking piece.

While this piece is a classic antique Oriental rug its geometric design as well as happy upbeat coloration make it a great option for a classic or traditional home interior design. Needless to say, one does not need to be a true collector of rugs or art to appreciate the beauty and chieftainship of this wonderful work of textile art.
