The condition is near perfect, with a good wool pile all over this carpet. The ends are secure and and side selvedges are secure and strong too. We have washed it by hand and the colours have freshened up beautifully. Over 130 years old, Heriz carpets as good as this piece were woven with the best materials and have stood the test of time.
We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment. Please request a home visit to view this beautiful rare antique Heriz carpet in your own home. We have been travelling all over the UK & Europe showing carpets in situ helping interior designers and customers alike for over 25 years.
Heriz carpets have always been regarded as beautiful, tough objects of decoration, made in the north-west of Persia these handwoven works of art always have variations from one piece to another. Some draw influences from further north into the Caucasus and vivid colours like this particular carpet.
