Antique Heriz rug

Circa 1900
200 × 150 cm 6’6” x 4’11”


As near to being in perfect condition as an antique rug can be! An antique Heriz rug of the highest order, very rare to find one in perfect pile, no losses to either ends and no repairs.  Symmetry is not always on a weavers mind, but the artistry of weaver is exceptional.  The blue four corner spandrels sit wonderfully in proportion with the star medallion, with subtle vines and leaf designs at either end. The whole composition of the rug is really wonderful.

The larger border design is often known as the so-called “turtle” pattern, which has probably been derived from the interlacing arabesques that appeared in rugs at least as early as the beginning of the 15th Century.  The rosette and attendant leaves between adjacent “turtles” show the other ancient ‘Herati’ pattern. Which has been stylised from two fish swimming around a water-lily over the centuries.

A handsome and interesting antique rug, full of charm and depth of colour.  Purchased from a collector, used on the floor for many many years but very much loved and looked after.  It is ready to be used again for another 100 years.

Heriz carpets and rugs are famous for their durability and are one of the toughest antique rugs due to the good quality wool that was used. They are still extremely popular today, and can be used in an traditional home with exposed beams for example as well as a more modern home with contemporary furniture and paintings. Their warm colours and interesting designs make them an excellent compliment to many interiors.

We love to travel all over the country showing our stock of beautiful antique and contemporary rugs in customers homes.
