8.4 x 9.10 Antique Heriz Carpet, Probably Village of Goravan, Northwest Persia, Circa 1920

The Heriz district in northwest Persia had a number of villages that produced carpets in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These included Heriz itself, Bakshaish, and Karaja in the 19th century, then supplemented by production in Goravan and Ahar in the 20th century.

This carpet, in a difficult to find size in the 8′ x 10′ range, was probably woven in Goravan, circa 1920. Goravan carpets tend to not be finely woven but they are still substantial weavings and are renowned for their beautiful color quality. This carpet features a denim blue medallion on a terra cotta color field that is framed by light camel color corner spandrels and a navy blue border that is decorated with leaves and flowerheads.

An excellent choice for furnishing or a beginning to intermediate collector, especially given the uncommon size. This is among our least expensive room size carpets but is still very beautiful.
