Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: First Quarter of the 20th Century – Reminiscent of Caucasian blossom rugs and the Harshang carpets of Kuba, this spectacular antique Persian carpet displays a beautiful range of historic designs from northwest Persia and the greater region. The regal carmine field displays an awe-inspiring allover latticework pattern with deeply serrated blossom motifs hugged by broad strap work accents. The lavish room-sized field displays a virtually unlimited palette of pure colors and a superb repertoire of detailed designs with superfluous decorations. Contrasting accents, expertly juxtaposed colors and infinitesimal symbols create a magnificent, beautifully coordinated allover pattern. This lavish mesh of burdock place holders, arthropodan blossoms and dragon-like cloud bands is enclosed by superb turtle-motif borders linked by interconnected stra pwork fins and accompanied by clouds of dense floral decorations that capture the over-the-top style of this masterpiece from Tabriz.
