Beautiful Large Size Tribal Geometric Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – A complex, layered tableau of floral patterning fills this antique Persian rug, rich with brick red, forest green, creamy yellow and black. The central area of this antique Persian Heriz Serapi rug is dominated by an ornate black ornament, decorated with red geometric shapes and adorned with peach around a delicate flower. This black figure rests over a crimson level, a stark contrast heightened by creamy accents that brace the intricate star. Green structures spread outward, reminiscent of leaves growing from the dark centerpiece. In each corner of the central field, angled cutouts backed in cream brim with jagged red and green shapes reminiscent of the pattern within. A set of borders comprised of two paired thin bands around a wider strip between surrounds the floral design, adding to the antique rug’s illusion of layers. The widest band of blue-gray contains a colorful multitude of blossoms linked by jutting stems, their forms arranged to maximize the thematic appearance of the hues present.
