An antique Heriz carpet woven around 1910-1920 with a rarer and hard to find all over stylised leaf and floral motif design. Woven with great colours and abundance of pale blues, natural ivory whites and muted yellow dyes. The condition is very good with a high wool pile on this antique carpet from the North-West of Persia, the ends/fringes are secure and sides too. A very decorative and easy to place carpet, ideal for many rooms such as a study, dining room, living room or entrance hall. Heriz rugs are incredibly tough as well as attractive persian rugs.
Heriz carpets have always been regarded as beautiful, tough objects of decoration, made in the north-west of Persia these handwoven works of art always have variations from one piece to another. Some draw influences from further north into the Caucasus and vivid colours like this particular carpet. A decorative yet practical carpet which has been used for over 100 years and stood the test of time.
