Antique Heriz carpet

Circa 1900
292 × 215 cm 9’6” x 7’


A rare all over geometric design antique Heriz carpet, woven around 1900-1910 in lovely original condition.  Gorgeous colours of pale blue and green, with a large early pattern often seen in Bakshaish carpets.

Finding these small size carpets from the Heriz region are increasingly difficult, as this was a size rarely woven and they are always sought after.  Wonderful rich colours using varying tomato reds, brick reds, soft blues and greens.  Over 100 years the dyes oxidise and change differently from one and another, hence you see this unique characteristic of dye change in antique pieces.

In very good order, a nice fine wool pile throughout and no losses to the borders at either end, a beautiful rare small size antique carpet full of charm and warmth.

Please request a home visit to use our no obligation service to view this beautiful rare size antique Heriz carpet in your own home.  A free, no obligation service we have offered since 1990.  We travel all over the UK showing our carpets and rugs in-situ helping interior designers and customers alike for over 30 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.  A decorative yet practical carpet which has been used for over 100 years and has already stood the test of time.
