Object Description

From the late 19th century we are lucky to be able to offer this rare pair of antique Heriz rugs, with fantastic muted natural dyes, and very close in colour and design.  These tribal weavers rarely wove pairs to be identical but they are very close, with similar motifs and connecting three medallions down the centre.  One rug is slightly warmer in colour than the other, this is not down to sunlight fading, but purely as the dyes have faded and oxidised differently as it is a different batch of wool used.

One rug measures 183 x 99 cm and the other is 182 x 94 cm, so they are very close in size.  We are selling them as a pair, as it would be a real shame to separate them.

Both rugs are in very good condition, with a medium wool pile height and sides and fringes secure.  These would look amazing either side of a bed or in hallway.  Rare to find pairs of antique rugs in these wonderful colours, both are full of charm and fabulous geometric motifs.

Please request a home visit or we would love to welcome you to our barn showroom in Surrey by appointment.  We have over 30 years experience helping customers and interior designers find the ideal carpet or rug for a home.

Object Literature

Heriz carpets and rugs are famous for their durability and are one of the toughest antique rugs due to the good quality wool that was used. They are still extremely popular today, and can be used in an traditional home with exposed beams for example as well as a more modern home with contemporary furniture and paintings. Their warm colours and interesting designs make them an excellent compliment to many interiors.

We love to travel all over the country showing our stock of beautiful antique and contemporary rugs in customers homes, contact us for assistance and arranging a home visit.

Object Condition

In fabulous original order, both rugs are in lovely condition and ready to be used.
