These bold palmettes and radiant rosettes are paired with graceful curvilinear vines, feathery leaflets and charming floral clusters that complement the elegant floral frame. The posh main borders contain a sophisticated collection of rosettes separated by cascading floral sprays and angled Hamsa motifs with beautifully curving petals that embody the graceful curvilinear style and detail-rich countenance of this antique Persian Tabriz carpet.
