Beautiful and Finely Woven Herati Design Antique Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin/ Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa: Early 20th Century – This arresting antique Persian Tabriz rug features a palatial composition with minute botanical decorations that have an unparalleled level of intricacy. The exquisite, softly oxidized decorator’s color palette centers on the saturated midnight blue field. Crisp white filamentous outlines highlight the decorative curves of each vine scroll, fish-shaped Herati leaf and poly-chromatic rosette. The deep cool-tone field also offsets the artfully colored botanical decorations and warm terracotta-colored borders beautifully. These extraordinary turtle-and-vine-scroll borders are wrapped with graceful curve-linear botanical decorations that meander around the perimeter of the expertly patterned field. Countless sets of intricately decorated guard bands buttress the sensuous main borders while balancing the boldly proportioned composition. From the classic colors to the carefully drawn curve-linear motifs, this antique rug from Tabriz is the paradigm of perfection.
