M Topalian 19th c Heriz with all over pattern

Most people expect a heriz to have a bold geometric patter, but this 19th century Heriz has an all over pattern of linked palmettes with a very interesting border.

From North West Persia, made in the last quarter (or possibly earlier) of the 19th Century, size 10’8″ by 9’9″ this carpet has a low even pile with some reweaving in the guard borders at the ends.
