A large middle to late 20th century Heriz carpet from northwest Iran.
The carpet has a Turkish knot (ghiordes), which most Persian carpets have, at approximately 40-50 knots per square inch.
The carpet has a multi-coloured border of flowers and foliage and the centre has a red background decorated with multi-coloured flowers and foliage.
The size recommends it as a large carpet rather than a rug.
The carpet is in very good condition. (Circa 1970)
