606. an enduring old Heriz Persian carpet

Old Heriz Persian Carpet

606. Provenance: Heriz, Northwest Persia

Size: 390 x 290 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Very good for age.

Notes: Lovely crisp drawing - pseudo-geometric rendition of a medallion floral design. The relatively coarse weave of Herizes gives this angular, almost tribal edge to even their most flowery rugs - preventing them from ever being 'chintzy'. As with most Herizes this piece is heavy, woven as it is on robust cotton foundations, and is superbly strong. It will absolutely not slip on wooden floors! As with most Herizes of this age, it also uses top notch natural dyestuffs.
