A very beautiful and unusual antique Heriz carpet with a ‘Boteh’ design in the main field surrounded by pale blue corner spandrels. The golden yellow border is also a rare colour to be used as more often they would have been a deep blue or rich red tones. Woven in the early part of the 20th century it is in excellent original condition all over, as the wool pile soft and high.
Heriz carpets have always been regarded as beautiful, tough objects of decoration, made in the north-west of Persia these handwoven works of art always have variations from one piece to another. Some draw influences from further north into the Caucasus and vivid colours like this particular carpet. This Heriz carpet is a decorative yet practical carpet which has been used for over 100 years and stood the test of time.
