Name: RICH & EFFORTLESS Beauty with Plush Soft Wool, Mint Condition Vintage Heriz
Size: 9.3 x 11.4
Age: Vintage , C. 1940-50's
Pile: Medium pile with incredibly soft, plush wool. Mint condition
About: This piece is just Unbelievably Gorgeous - there is something about the way the weavers have architected this color palette together that really works so well. It's hard to put into words, it just sort of speaks to the eyes so effortlessly. Even the design - this medallion is so unique - it is oversized in its width giving it a more focal and balanced feel whereas in most other Heriz pieces the medallion is elongated in an attempt to make the piece look longer. This piece has a very balanced composition in the overall breadth of it. The details are just as equally engineered to create a playful tension between motifs but never any struggle on the eyes - the entire piece is effortless through and through. The 4 corner spandrels are so beautifully "carved" and layered with this subtle yet present color combination. All in all, just very easy on the eyes, it is magnetic in that way. The hues are so divine - rich strawberry hues, soft mocha, deep espresso, beautiful English rose, antique beige, muted salmon, almost a blackish-charcoal, earthy taupe, and more. Unreal bands of abrash beam through giving this piece its authentic birthmarks and true one-of-one character. I love this rug every time I look at it and its beauty, coupled with its age and condition with the plush hand-spun wool pile gives it a glowing richness that is just so very impressive - true art right here.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are 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.
