|Early 20th Century|
Enormous, exhuberant, multicoloured,fantastic palmettes are asymmetrically placed along stiff midnight blue flowering vines. Each palmette explodes with a wide variety of colours and lively internal details : botehs, blossoms,eccentric petals,scaly seedpods,sword-like stamens. Each motif is incredibly colourful,and the whole carpet has at least a dozen colours,including powder blue, sky blue, navy, straw, pale green, rust red, tomato, black, ivory, salmon and blue green.
Each major palmette has a unique colour scheme and their shapes are scattered about the field in an almost random positioning. There is no axis of symmetry anywhere. The small flowers growing from the vines are equally individual and no two are alike. The pattern descends from late 19th century Heriz carpets in the Bakhshayesh style, but none are as colourful and uninhibited as this one.
The borders are in a much smaller scale than the field and are more restrained. The navy main stripe has a double yellow vine with rosettes and palmettes.
Many allover design carpets have an implicit or tiny central element,but this visually arresting carpet has none. The design may ultimately relate to 17th century Kerman "vase" carpets, but is much wilder and undesciplined. This is one of the most fun Heriz rugs on the market.
