(Decorative) Heriz rugs never cease to amaze us in the range of novel designs used and this one is very striking in its unique arrangement. With its cheerful field design of elongated flowers arranged around a central blossom, it is greatly enhanced by an extremely rich color palette. The brilliant blues along with burnished gold, bronze, celadon, and soft rose seem particularly luminous set against the deepest midnight blue background. The masterful rendering of intentional color shifts known as abrash in the guard borders creates a harmonious sense of depth, changing from soft azure to a rich lapis. At over a century old with mostly heavy pile, this almost-never-seen size is in extremely good condition. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815)
