Fine Antique Tabriz Carpet
3.85 x 2.82 m
The city of Tabriz in Northwest Persia has been known as a major centre of fine rug weaving since at least the 14th Century. Antique Tabriz carpets are distinguished by their tight weaves and remarkable adherence to the traditions of Classical Persian rug weaving design.
This early example, dating to the beginning of the 20th Century, has a harmonious vegetable-dyed colour palette of terracotta, ivory, olive green and light sky-blue tones and a monochrome overall repeated drawing, framed by eight artistic borders – still intact on all four sides, a rare feature for a rug of this age.
A stylish piece, in excellent condition, with a quiet formality to complement a classic or contemporary setting.
