This is a vintage Heriz that sets really sets the mood with warmth and style! The rug features madder red ground, ivory side corners that frame the rug, with beautiful blues throughout. The border is filled with a bold and amazing design. It also features a beautiful central medallion that cannot be missed. It is medium pile and has scattered wear and some areas of loss of wool. See pics. Priced super low for an 80 year old rug!
You can really see the intricate details, with geometric and floral design, and amazing medallions and motifs throughout this colorful rug. It was hand knotted and has a natural fade from the vegetable dyed wool that has been earned through time. These pics were taken outside, so the rug will be a bit darker when set inside the home. Colors will vary based on lighting and time of day and they are plentiful!

More about this rug: 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.
