A fine and extremely decorative late 19th century Persian Heriz Carpet
Hand knotted in wool
Heriz carpets and rugs from the Heriz region in northern Persia are often influenced by the geometric designs of the caucasian weavings. The woollen carpets and rugs are often quite coarsely woven in distinct contrast to the superb quality of those woven in pure silk. However this carpet is very finely knotted.
