A rare small Heriz rug of the caliber often referred to as antique “Serapi” rugs. This example is part of a distinctive group, more typically found in room size carpet formats than small rugs, with pairs of leaves in the medallion complemented by arching leaves in the field and a pair of split leaves in the corner spandrels. The green ground color in the spandrels is uncommon and quite beautiful.
