Object Description

Large 19th Century Hadji Jalili Carpet
6.09 x 3.82 m

Antique Tabriz carpets are distinguished by their fine weaves and remarkable adherence to the traditions of Classical Persian rug design. This elegant c. 1890s example is associated with the Master weaver, Hadji Jalili, well known as the artist behind some of the most exquisite and highly sought-after pieces of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many of which can be spotted in grand historic homes across the UK and Europe.

This carpet features a charming, earthy colour palette, with neutral tones of soft caramel, olive green, and ochre, all in vegetable dyes that have taken on a fine patina with age, lending the work a sense of understated grace. The composition employs a plain ivory central medallion framed by four spandrels, overlaid with a delicate repeated pattern – despite using a medallion however, this rug has an unusually well-balanced, open layout, with an all-over design, well complemented by its restrained use of colour.

Preserved in very good condition for everyday use, with its outer borders and short fringes retained on all sides.

A beautiful example of its type, rare in this large size, which would feel at home in any setting.
