("New Arrivals Gallery") Distinctive antique Heriz carpets woven in the Persian Azerbaijan region are perennially popular choices among our clientele with a full range of decors. The piece's unusual 6x9-1/2 size is not often found and was likely a specific commission within their society. Its wonderfully classical medallion and flame-like palmette pendants are perfectly proportioned to the whole. An eclectic array of splendid naturally dyed hues of rich ruby, mellow gold, and Prussian blue command the field. The beautiful, inspired range of highly-prized teals in the handsome corner spandrels are fetching in this piece and greatly compliment the soft coral tones there. A skillful application of abrash, or intentional color changes, throughout the rug exudes a sense of depth and elevates this charming and joyful work of art well above the ordinary. At some 110 years of age, this absolutely spirited antique rug is as durable as it is delightful.
