Name: Apollo | INCREDIBLE Antique Rug C. 1910's | Stunning Geometric Northwest GEM Antique Persian Heriz-Serapi Rug 

Size: 11.1 x 11.9

Age: Antique, C. 1910's

Pile: Low

About: I have named this piece after my favorite Greek God, the God of the Sun, music, and art, amongst many other things. This piece is a true example of what early mountainous and village weavings look like when met with the tremendous demand for high-end furnishings from Europe and American markets. These colors were and still are very desirable with anchoring handsome red, pops of muted and aged salmon, sensational blues with smokey charcoal abrash throughout, midnight blues and sky blues, Carolina blues, with unusual mint, and smokey emerald green in the corner spandrels, and of course the earthy hues and antique beige. Aside from the sensational and unique colors used, this design strikes the perfect balance of iconic and all-encompassing medallion, with an impromptu and very artistic flair that captures the weaver's merit throughout. There are moments in this piece that are so personal and a wonderful departure from the expected. You can see some in the stylized ram horns, wonderful shrubs and trees growing with root-inspired motifs throughout, and even the details and composition of the beautiful use of layered color from the corners of the rug, and layering in towards the focal point in the center of the medallion. This piece has a low pile and the wool is nice and soft from the happy sheep of the northwest mountains. The natural dyes have softened over time which has aged perfectly without harsh artificially bright colors. This piece really is a top-notch piece and I would absolutely put it in my own home. The size is so crazy old, nearly a square which is indicative of its age. These pieces were known for their bold yet classical beauty that worked well with other furnishings while holding their own as a true piece of art on the floor. You will love this piece for a very high-end and highly-prized one-of-a-kind gem.

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.
