Name: STUNNING Slender European Sized Antique Heriz-Serapi | Sophisticated Old World Art
Size: 8.2 x 13
Age: Antique, C. 1910-20's
Pile: Low Pile with wonderful patina and age-related wear; throughout you'll find some areas of Kashmiri restoration (flat-weave style) which are very hard to tell (see pics). This is a very old piece and those areas can be restored if you want but in my opinion it doesn't need it at all.
About: RARE SIZE for all my European Cottages, Italianate living spaces, and even Older Townhomes that may have a slender feel or lives a bit more narrow than your typical American home - this piece is for YOU! Take a good look at how pretty this piece is; iconic color palette with all natural and matured dyes softened by time, climate, and environment. The Starburst medallion with elongated finials add to the length of this piece giving it almost a Kelleh Gallery Runner feel but still remaining as a true Area rug. Tons of gorgeous natural dyes; rusty reds to a softer madder root, denim and ice blues, amazing pastel greens, airy antique beige, salmon, coral, rose, camel, caramel, and more. Lots of space throughout the design which adds to that artistic and orgnaic creative flair that these weavers got to take and run with at the loom - this space offers movement in the rug and the curls and arabesque nature of the vines show the quality and fineness of the weave - many tribal rugs can't get the curved angles as well because the knots are a bit larger and it looks more clunky or choppy, this piece took more time and was woven by probably a bit more seasoned weavers to achieve this sort of movement - powerful stuff! You will LOVE this piece if you can navigate this super unique size!!
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.
