759. an elegant old Heriz Persian Carpet

Old Heriz Persian Carpet

759. Provenance: Heriz, Persian Azerbaijan, NW Persia

Size:  350 x 280 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Good. Slightly lighter at one end than other.

Notes:  Herizes of this type use only the best natural dyestuffs and superb hard-wearing yarn. The construction is massive with heavy cotton wefts and warps. Although the weave is coarse in these Heriz's they are excellent carpets. Nowhere else do carpets of similar weave density have such a good construction or so much individuality of design and colouring. The pseudo-geometric floral design shows it's village origins, yet it is understated and elegant, not overly busy.
