Early Heriz silk rug

Early Heriz silk rug


A true masterpiece within it’s genre. The vast majority of Silk rugs from Heriz contain designs that can be firmly placed within the Qajar artisitc lexicon; one would be hard pressed to find an example, such as this piece, with a composition so directly inspired by the classical Safavid design repertoire. This fact suggests that this piece comes from the earliest era in which Heriz silk rugs were woven.
