76651 Traditional Antique Persian Heriz Rug with English Country Style Manor House 10’02 x 12’10 From Esmaili Rugs Collection. This hand-knotted wool antique Persian Heriz rug features a large octofoil medallion with palmette pendants floating in the center of an abrashed brick red field. The octagram, or eight-pointed star, is often used as a medallion design in Heriz rugs. Sometimes referred to as the “Seal of the Prophets,” the octagram symbolizes faith and spirituality. A variety of geometric floral motifs surround the medallion in an elaborate display of palmettes, serrated leaves, buds, blooms, open blossoms, and small leaflets. Corner spandrels echo the designs of the medallion and field. Delicate meander and guard borders and running water border-stripes flank a stylized Herati main border. The midnight ink blue border and field accents ground and give weight to the lovely pink, coral and soft sage colors of this Heriz rug, while pops of ivory add further dimension and definition to the design. The unique color palette, lively motifs, and intricate detailing come together beautifully.
