19th Century Serapi Rug

US$60,000

About

An extraordinary, authentic late 19th century Persian Heriz Serapi rug. The Serapi rug can be traced back to the beginning of Persian handmade rug production in 5,500 B.C., but it was not until the mid-19th century that Persian rugs began to be exported around the world. Before these rugs became an export item, they were used only in the villages in which they were produced. Mellow colors and more minimal pattern distinguish the Serapi from other members of the Heriz family. Original Serapi rugs were created in the villages of Serapi, Sarab, Ahar, Heriz and Gorevan. Older Heriz and Serapi carpets were knotted over a wool fiber warp while carpets made later in the 19th century used cotton for the warp, weft, and fringe. Heriz and Serapi rugs as well as those produced in the neighboring cities of Ghorevan and Ahar are known for their geometric figures, unique colors, high-quality construction, and attention to detail. Heriz carpets remain one of the most iconic styles of Oriental rugs. Despite an embargo on Persian rugs imported into the U.S that is still ongoing.
