About

Known for their unique style and sophisticated Persian motifs, this outstanding antique Heriz-Serapi rug created circa 1890 features an elegant angular arabesque rendered in a classic selection of regional colors, including warm chestnut brown, oxidized Persian blue and peachy pastel pinks. Meandering leaf and vinescroll borders embellished with delicate floral sprays and foliate tendrils enclose the elaborate field. Rendered in an angular style synonymous with Persia's northwestern region, this elegant antique carpet features a multitude of angular botanical motifs connected by branching vines and carefully outlined stems. Delicate rosettes, oxidized leaflets and grand palmettes decorate the exquisitely abrashed field allowing the beautifully aged background colors to peek through the botanical arabesque. These formal motifs and quirky vinescrolls gently support the central rosette medallion and formal botanical emblems that the loosely spaced vinescrolls surround.
