Woven in Heriz, north-west Persia it is rare to find such a remarkable silk rug as they are not known for producing a large quantity of finer silk pieces. Woven around 1870 which we date due to the Fuschine dye which was originally a mauve, purple colour and has faded to the light grey you can see across the centre. The variation of Abrash (dye change) is quite remarkable and extremely beautiful, showing an immense amount of character. The condition is excellent having hung on a wall landscape for the majority of its life as far as we know. The size is also very unusual as it is really a small format carpet rather than a rug, more often these rugs stopped around 2 metres in length. The size is 2.92 x 1.65m

All the ends, selvedges are original and it has been woven on a silk foundation with there only one small piece of restoration in the centre. The silk pile is very fine and very high all over. A real collectors item, and a rug which almost certainly increase in value as the years go by.
In exceptional original condition, with both the side/selvedges and ends all original. Minimal loss to the sidecord on one side, very easy to restore. One old small area of restoration in the centre.
