Antique Heriz Carpet with Gentle Wear

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very nice example of large format carpet weaving from the very prolific Heriz-Serapi region of Northwestern Iran, with a well-articulated design and natural dyes, indicating good age. The carpet has overall even wear, with some foundation exposed. It still looks fantastic and is structurally sound, so we decided against extensive repairs, which would not have had any real benefit. A beautiful antique carpet that shows its age and still looking great.
