Rare Antique Heriz carpet

Circa 1900
282 × 214 cm 9’3” x 7’


A rare all over design small size antique Heriz carpet, woven around 1900-1910 in lovely original condition.  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.

A rare all over field design too, consisting of the famous early ‘Harshang’ design, often known as the Crab design too, less obvious in the Harshang format, a more abstract version of a Crab in our opinion.  The Crab design is more-often seen in Caucasian rugs from Azerbaijan and in particular the main border.

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

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.
