This is a 1940s Vintage Persian Heriz that sets really sets the mood with warmth and style! The hand knotted rug features madder red ground, ivory side corners, intricate geometric design and a beautiful central medallion that cannot be missed. It is medium pile and pretty even throughout. In great condition for its age!
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!
Size: 8'7 x 11'8
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.
