Tabriz Rug, Persia, First Quarter of the 20th Century – Achieving a remarkable level of elegance and sophistication, this antique Persian rug from Tabriz is an exemplary representation of the region’s sensuous curvilinear arabesques and soft colors that are prized among decorators. The stormy field displays a robust assortment of abrashed jewel-tone blues accented by a host of gilded camel brown ornaments. Pendulous botehs, fan-shaped bouquets and flower-laden vine scrolls are artfully interwoven in a regal allover pattern that balances the scale of the field perfectly. The grandiose style of the lush Tabriz-style florals is gracefully mirrored in the monumental borders, which display a multitude of tonal decorations accented with walnut brown and blue. These radiant, softly colored borders and multi-part guard bands anchor the palatial composition and provide a fitting conclusion that’s tasteful, elegant and impeccably styled.
