Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Persia, c. 1920 – This opulent antique Persian Tabriz carpet epitomizes a traditional, timeless model of elegance befitting Persia’s palaces and the new world’s regal mansions. This monumental antique carpet displays a superlative allover Herati pattern with minuscule features and dense decorations that obscure the soft blue ground. The richly detailed field is framed by elegant guard bands and sophisticated turtle and vine scroll borders that have a fantastic reciprocal arrangement punctuated by perfectly formed rosettes. This phenomenal palace-sized antique rug represents the very best of Tabriz, including the iconic Mahi pattern, which is one of the most recognizable regional designs. This distinctive pattern takes on a new level of elegance and refinement with the filamentous details and stunning combination of powdery blue and ivory, which would complement the most decorative neoclassical interiors.
