(High-Decorative) This bold, spirited antique Persian Village mat is a pleasing departure from the center medallion design of the great majority of Heriz rugs. With a gleaming jewel at its center, a triplet of hooked diamond medallions is presented on the sumptuous backdrop of rich carnelian red in a range of saturated, celebrative tones that include soft teal, burnished gold, coral, ivory, and royal blue. The relatively spacious design allows the viewer to relish the naturally dyed color palette and time softened patina. Intriguing variations in the main border pattern are further enlivened by the effective alternation between light and dark elements in this diminutive piece, that was handcrafted just before the advent of the commercial period where staid and predictable design perfection" became the new normal. Its heavy pile and firm handle make it as durable as it is artfully decorative.
