465 x2 120818 Old Heriz Rug 2'5'' x 1'8''
Antique Persian Heriz Rug 465, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 — This antique Persian rug , an antique Heriz carpet, is produced in earthen tones, echoing a plethora of deep blues that include shades of salmon, hickory and mocha. In addition to such cool and rich tones, there are many warmer hues present as well, lending the viewer brighter tones, such as caramel and golden tawny. All of the colors are accented beautifully with pale sapphire, light tangerine and a creamy buttermilk, which brightens the design exquisitely, while still allowing it to appear humble in its base. The antique rug is surrounded with a frame of blossoms that are joined together with a cascading vine throughout the outer edge. Within the outermost border is another patterned section, which contains larger and more detailed images of flora that feature a more geometric appearance. The focal area of this piece is a powerful design that contains three octagons, which are hemmed with diagonal stripes and accented by symmetrical images of blossoms.
