This beautiful late 19th century antique Heriz carpet has just arrived into our inventory and we are delighted with it! It really is such a wonderful example with fantastic early muted dyes and in exceptional order. The wool pile is very high all over this antique carpet as these carpets were known for their durability and iron properties used in the wool. The colours and defined drawing of the medallion and corner areas are what make it such an interesting and desired carpet. The pale yellows and duck egg blue tones add great charm to the madder red and deep blue dyes.
