11.8 x 14.3 Fine Antique Heriz Serapi Carpet With Lattice Design, Northwest Persia, Circa 1900
This oversized antique Heriz carpet is of the age and quality where Heriz carpets are often referred to colloquially as antique “Serapi” carpets. The brick red field is decorated with an all-over lattice design, with interconnecting vines framing large flowerheads. A navy blue “Turtle” border frames the field.
All-over design “Serapi” carpets are less common than their central medallion format counterparts. The lattice design seen in this carpet is particularly distinctive.
This carpet would go well in a range of rooms, from country high style to more formal or even modern.
