Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th century – Fantastically detailed, this superlative antique Persian Tabriz rug takes the traditional Tree of Life composition to an un-imagined level of beauty. The soft ivory-colored field is decorated with a towering Tree of Life vase surrounded by decorative trees. Lavish constellations of carefully outlined floral sprays create a soaring millefleur composition that epitomizes the elegant style of Tabriz. Grand borders and intensely decorated guard-bands create a weighted frame that flatters the exuberant botanical motifs that appear in the field. The magnificent composition is emboldened by the lush turtle-and-vine scroll borders, which are flanked by a series of interwoven bifurcated calyces set over a millefleur background. The composition, the attention to detail and the soft earthy colors give this tremendous antique Persian Tabriz rug a powerful, impressive visage.
