Exquisite antique silk Heriz rug dating to the late 19th century.

Its all over design on a white ground is a repeat of five rows of dark red tendrils in the shape of arabesques around flowers, with four rows of light green flowers around a dark red centre in the spaces between the arabesque elements. Two floral meandering borders on a dark red ground flank the main border on a light green ground which is filled with flower heads that echo the shapes in the field. The colour scheme is fairly subdued and subtle, with only a few exceptions where the green is abrashed into a stronger blue. This subtlety, in combination with the quality of the silk and of the accomplished weave, make for an extremely elegant carpet.

The handle of this finely woven silk rug is supple and soft, and it feels almost like velvet.

This is an exceptional example of fine village weaving from the northwestern part of Iran.

The condition is excellent.
