Claremont Rug Company is pleased to present this lovely new addition to our Featured Arrivals collection, a beautiful antique Heriz runner in highly sought after camelhair. This deeply desirable antique runner highlights an extremely innovative and imaginative design, breaking away entirely from the classical Heriz pattern language. The palette is absolutely sublime, liberally using rich, deeply saturated tones of emerald green, cornflower blue and auburn hues alongside the widest possible range of undyed camelhair tones, from a soft light sand to a bold and vibrant chocolate brown. Continual color striation is used to emphasize these tones still more and to enhance the rug’s considerable visual depth, while a time-softened patina brings a tremendous warmth. This piece is a visual feast for an educated eye, rewarding a closer look with elements from the classical Herati design utilized in a freeform way, abstracted fronds and vibrant rosettes floating freely in the spacious, dramatically deconstructed field. This rug is in wonderful condition, and would be a magnificent addition to any collector’ home.
