Antique Persian Heriz rugs simply don’t get much better that this turn of the century Persian rug. The antique Persian Heriz, Serapi and even Bakshaish rugs are always a great addition to any room with their wonderful use of colors and beautifully rendered design ornaments. This rug is from the Heriz region which is known for producing profoundly beautiful and durable rugs from high-quality wool. The rugs from Northwest Persia tend to boast bolder colors that are associated with the copper found in the region’s water. The highly skilled Persian rug weavers used indigo to produce a unique variation of colors that range from dark midnight blue to clear sky azure tones. The rug’s soft cascading blue us perfectly balanced and framed by the rust tone border.br>
The captivating Persian rugs from Heriz balance botanical and geometric designs creating a natural style that compares to the exaggerated arabesques seen in other rug techniques. The Heriz and antique Persian Serapi rugs tend to feature large, connected medallions in rectilinear, anchor, geometric and floral patterns. The beautiful light blue background color of this antique Persian Heriz rug includes a cross-like central motif but is considered more of an allover rug design. Graceful tendrils stretch out from the center and connect it to the designs within the soft blue field. This antique Heriz rug consists of curvilinear designs and botanical motifs.br>
These breathtaking antique rugs display a range of colors from earth tones to vibrant jewel tones. The captivating Persian rugs from this origin and region also tend to be far more geometric and tribal in both look and general feel. This makes them perfect for a wide range of interior design approaches.br>
The ornaments on this blue Heriz rug also seem to continue beyond the field. The infinite repetition of the ornaments in the field makes the central motif appear as if it is floating in a blue sky or floating atop crystal blue water. This Heriz rug beautifully portrays the natural and antique world in an polished manner. It is a lively but elegant rug that combines cool and warm colors and brings life to a setting.
