Name: Sophisticated JUNGLE Heriz Serapi | Truly Gorgeous, Unmatched Crispness & Colors
Size: ~ 8.8 x 11.7
Age: Antique, C. 1915
Pile: Medium Plush Wool, incredibly soft, lanolin-rich, high-quality wool that is both strong and soft. Your feet will LOVE it. We've tidied up some areas and done some minor restoration; there's still some low and light missing pile throughout and if this bothers you , we can repile all the areas - reach out for a quote; otherwise this piece is a GEM.
About: One of the FINEST WEAVES I've ever seen on a piece from this Northwest Persian village - you can see the quality of clarity in the border, and in every single exotic motif inside the field. Magnificent colors and just a BEYOND special beauty. The turtle borders look like real turtles swimming in the water, the crisp vines look like they're actually holding never-before-seen geometric flora, and the colors are so brilliant you'll think you're seeing color for the first time. It really is that incredible. One of the VERY best Heriz-Serapi pieces we've ever had in our collection. We had one in this family with the iconic medallion design that sold to a wonderful client, but having this same caliber in the more exotic and uncommon all-over design is next level! True Mystical Floor Art.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
