A very fine late 19th Century Silk Heriz Rug
Hand knotted in silk
In excellent condition
Heriz carpets and rugs from the Heriz region in northern Persia are often influenced by the geometric designs of the caucasian weavings. The woollen carpets and rugs are often quite coarsely woven in distinct contrast to the superb quality of those woven in pure silk. However this silk rug is very finely knotted.
