(Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This visually stirring high-mountain Persian village carpet activates the senses with detailed geometry and harmonious, earthy color tones. The highly creative weavers of Heriz were renowned for their unification of formal city patterns with the more robust tribal color palette and a rustic, geometric style of drawing and this is no exception. A harmoniously juxtaposed color palette of carnelian, dusky rose, bronze and jade entrance and evoke a joyous feeling in the viewer. The main border features purposeful color shifts that display a range of blue tones supporting an intricate, interlocking vine and blossom design. Its kaleidoscopic, orderly medallion is framed by eye-catching cornerpieces of burnished gold adorned with wonderfully stylized floral motifs that are diagnostic of this type. Happily, this antique Persian rug remains in heavier pile condition at 120 years of age. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-18 Learn About This Rug Type
