This is a very unusual format for an antique Heriz, one, frankly, which we have never seen before. The deep salmon field contains two large Turtle palmettes in shades of coral, ivory and navy blue. Those are flanked by two large camel color leaves. Smaller stylized polychromatic flowers and leaves serve as ancillary decoration in the field. A navy blue Turtle border frames the field.

A moderately priced antique furnishing carpet that is very distinctive.
