WORN ANTIQUE HERIZ ROOM SIZE RUG
With mellowed Serapi colors, circa 1900
Item # 801PAA27W
This is one of those antique Heriz rugs we just love, heavily worn and distressed throughout and all the more interesting because of it. The intense geometry is typical of the early Heriz carpets with a vivid central motif and gorgeous mellowed spandrels with Serapi pinks and aqua blues against the floral depictions. It was likely under a center table or gueridon for a length of time, as the central motif is very well preserved while the rest of the carpet is evenly trafficked and worn. These are such a rich addition to rooms with a touch of the English Country Home aesthetic, where the worn leather chair and aged carpet are set against book laden shelves.
For anyone passionate about aged antique Serapi and Heriz rugs, this is a very fun piece.
