Fantastic Antique Oriental Heriz Rug - ca 1890 - Excellent Condition
This magnificent Heriz offers a remarkably distinctive composition of exuberant patterns rendered in most brilliant, powerful colors. Its surprisingly
vigorous all-over design features an axis of multicolored palmettes and florals in the middle of the field, which then branches into myriad little vines and flower buds in astonishing, delightful colors of light blue, indigo blue, peach, pink, teal, lime green, medium green, teal, gold and pale orange on a dark navy blue, almost black ground.
The rug is extraordinary and fascinating to look at because of the artistry that gave it a superbly structured geometry and created a unique sense of order and harmony out of a quite busy all-over design that literally fills the field.
The large main border is in perfect contrast to the dark navy blue, almost black background of the field with its persimmon accent and does a Fine job of changing the pace with its deliberately spaced out floral patterns and vines.
