A RARE SIZE FOR AN ANTIQUE HERIZ and a BARGAIN BUSTER.
Almost all are 8x10 or larger. This is a great find and a treasure. So for those of you who love a 1920s HERIZ and want a smaller version, you've found a slice of heaven!
This rug was hand knotted in Northwest Persia, is a century old and has scattered wear and character. The geometric design was hand knotted with very durable, coarse wool from NW Persia. It sits on a madder red ground and with all natural, vegetable dyed wool.
It is low pile with some beautiful and lovely scattered wear (you can see in pics)...great character which shows off its real age. A real beauty that has timeless value and generations to go.
Heriz are one of the most sought after antique rugs and the durability of this heavy rug will last for generations to come. This is such a charming and desirable rug, with an all over geometric design.

Fun facts: Heriz rugs are known for their outstanding durability. Coined "the Iron Rug of Persia," Heriz rugs were produced in the Northwest corner of Persia, on and around Mount Sabalan. One reason for the toughness of Heriz carpets is that Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. Trace copper in the drinking water of sheep produces the most desired wool for rug weaving because it makes wool that is stronger and more resilient than wool from most other areas. It is said that many Heriz rug designs are woven from memory, with intricate designs passed on through generations of artisans.
