ANTIQUE HERIZ RUG MASTERPIECE AT THE ORIENTAL RUG GALLERY LTD

This season’s featured ‘Rug Masterpiece’, sourced by award-winning Rug Specialists and Master Rug Craftsmen, The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd, is an Antique Persian Heriz ‘sampler’ rug from north-west Iran. Circa 1910.

 

Sitting on rich copper reserves within the foothills of Mount Sabalan, Heriz produces a high quality, resilient wool containing traces of copper that act as a natural mordant and dye fixative, making this Heriz rug a durable, hard-wearing weave.

 

Displaying the distinctive Heriz geometric floral pattern, this hand-woven rug portrays a central medallion, spandrel embellishments and zig-zag contouring, set on an ivory field and surrounded with a rosette border.

 

The natural dyes of madder red, from deepest terracotta to palest coral, of indigo blue tones of inkiest midnight to lightest cerulean, with moss green and saffron soft-gold highlights, creates a subdued harmony of contrasting colourways that balance the angularity of this Heriz design.

 

Ideal as a focus piece, this unique and timeless Heriz rug looks at home in either a contemporary or traditional setting.  

 

Hand-knotted wool pile on a cotton foundation. Size: 1.27m x 1.00m
