Vintage Persian Heriz runner BB6060 3'3" × 14'10"

A thin bright main border completes the look of the antique runner. 19th century Heriz rugs are among the most striking and recognizable Oriental antique carpets within the Persian repertoire. Despite their origins in fairly sophisticated workshops, a strong tribal quality exists in these particular antique Persian rugs. Heriz (sometimes known as Serapi) rugs may be found with all-over designs and abstract interpretations of willow trees or ascending shield palmettes. Robustly constructed with large knots and often on a grand scale, they feature colors that range from jewel tones of cherry red, navy blue and saffron yellow, to pale terracotta, sea foam, powder blue and ivory.
