303. A sublime Antique Heriz Carpet

303. Provenance: Heriz, Persian Azerbaijan, NW Persia

Age: Circa 1920

Size: 379 x 263 cm

Condition: Very good.

Notes: I adore Heriz carpets. This one is typical in that it uses only the best natural dyestuffs and superb hard-wearing yarn. The construction is typically massive with heavy cotton wefts and warps. Although the weave is coarse in these Heriz's, they are excellent carpets. Nowhere else do carpets this coarse have such a good construction or so much individuality of design and colouring.

Price: $2095
