I use the word serapi due to possible age when heriz were made in serapi and sparse border.
Also smaller size 7X10. I can't find a true heriz with a ivory or white field.
The rug has a loose handle and weight only 36lbs as an indicator of pile and age.

Would appreciate any comments. Obviously has some wear, but I would suspect the same form many such rugs.

Thanks

I am afraid it is a Gerovan, which is much inferior to Serapi from the same Heriz region but a very nice one. You are right they are not usually in cream and all over design.
