SB0118 Heriz Sm Carpet 7-10" x 10-2"
Antique Heriz Medallion Carpet
SB0118 Heriz Medallion small carpet.
A unique antique Persian Heriz rug with a lively design and the most amazing colors. Natural dyes with this subtlety and clarity are only found on the genuinely old Heriz rugs from the 1880s though 1910s.
The overall impression is light and natural, with a definite twinkle. Sparkling greens, ice blue, Persian blue, apricot, lustrous browns, mocha, white, and pink, provide the perfect contrast on the cinnamon background. An exceptional indigo border contains the festivities. Great handspun mountain wool and a supple handle like only the early rugs have. This Heriz is in good antique condition with nice soft pile over most of the rug. There are also low areas with wear in the corners. Freshly washed and looking great. Circa 1890 -1900 7-10″ x 10-2″/ $Sold
