Antique Heriz Serapi Persian Rug #44537
44537 Antique Serapi / Heriz, Persia, late nineteenth century - This lavish antique Serapi has a classic Heriz design. A monumental star medallion rendered in soft blue, pale green, and salmon and sprouting lush finials in red hovers within a cool ivory field. Red cornerpieces with arabesque detail reverse the colors of the medallion. A broad pale blue-ground ‘turtle’ border frames the field, enclosed by minor vinescroll borders, recalling again the palette of the medallion, but with a contrasting, more delicate scale. The drawing has a finesse unusual among Serapis.
