(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Turn of the 20th century Heriz carpets are a distinct style in the Persian rug panoply. Second cousins of the Serapi and Bakshaish styles, they inherited a vital artistic tradition that valued spontaneity, spirited colors, and folkloric drawing. Exemplifying this group is this engaging, 10x13 antique carpet with its overall pattern of minimalist blossoms and angular vinery on a constant, quietly striating brick red background. Complementing the interior is an absolutely beautiful border, its cartouche and leaf design seemingly floating on the azuretoned -base, rather than the traditional navy bluie. Happily, in superb, heavier pile condition, this high- spirited piece can be the foundation for a memorable, casual space. Learn About This Rug Type
