61089 Vintage Persian Heriz Rug, 05'05 x 12'10.

Timelessly sophisticated meets enduring elegance in this meticulously hand-knotted vintage Persian Heriz rug. Hailing from the legendary weaving village of Heris, nestled in the slopes of Mount Sabalan, this vintage Heriz rug boasts a rich history rooted in the Old World tales intricately woven into its very fibers.

Embodying the durability synonymous with Heriz carpets, this masterpiece is crafted from the high-quality wool produced by the sheep drinking from the copper-enriched waters of Mount Sabalan. As a testament to its longevity, this Persian rug stands as a contemporary heirloom, echoing the robustness of 19th-century examples often auctioned by prestigious houses in the United States and Europe.

In this particular Persian Heriz rug, perpetually posh aesthetics merge seamlessly with a preppy formality. The geometric precision of three superimposed octofoil medallions takes center stage on an abrashed red field, creating a visual symphony of serrated leaves, angular buds, stylized florals, curved sickle leaves, rosettes, lotus blossoms, and Ram's Horn motifs. Each element dances harmoniously, infusing a touch of mystique into the fabric.

The rug's visual complexity is heightened by the bold earth-tone colors, a characteristic feature of Heriz rugs. The ivory corner spandrels elegantly echo the intricate designs within the field, creating an esoteric juxtaposition within the overall geometric pattern. The composition is framed with a classic Samovar turtle vine scroll border, enclosed by inner and outer floral meander guard borders, showcasing the rug's meticulous craftsmanship.

This vintage Persian Heriz rug not only reflects a traditional sensibility but also serves as a timeless expression of cultural pride. The classic iterations of red, ivory, and navy blue subtly evoke a sense of patriotism, reminiscent of the American, British, or French aesthetic. With its iconic styling and enduring elegance, this vintage Persian Heriz rug radiates character and warmth, inviting you to become a part of its storied legacy.
