Rare Narrow Antique Heriz runner

Circa 1890
294 × 63 cm 9’7” x 2’


Woven on a deep blue almost black background we offer here a rare narrow antique Heriz runner, late 19th century and full of tribal charm.  Madder red dyes and varying pale blue dyes, we can see great abrash (dye change) in the minor blue borders.  As the weaver has gone along and wove this piece, they have run out of certain wool and used a different batch of blue wool.  This adds great character and filled with geometric floral motifs of leaves in the main field.

We supply excellent underlay with every carpet, runner or rug too which would aid this antique runner and helps to keep it secure on the floor.  The wool pile is fairly good on this runner, please look at all the additional images of this piece to see the condition up close.

Request a home visit to arrange an ideal day and time for us to visit you to show you this antique Heriz runner in situ, so you can see if the size, colour and design works in your home.  We travel all over the UK helping customers and interior designers.

Heriz and Karaja are not far from the Azerbaijan Border so they draw influences from many Caucasian rugs and runners. They are easily recognisable with repeating medallions similar to those in caucasian rugs. The central motif is often the latch-hooked design motif or an eight-pointed star.  The village weavings of Karaja such as this runner often use a simpler repeating medallion design with a great array of colour.
