Finely Woven Antique Haji Jalili Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 – Some carpets come together with a design and color palette that gives them an almost sublime quality. Sometimes, this combination of color and design is difficult to define in words, but you know it when you see it. Haji Jalili is a master weaver who was called upon as one of several Masters given the task of reviving the carpet weaving tradition of Tabriz after nearly two centuries of dormancy. They wanted to revive the once-great Persian carpet weaving centers and make Tabriz a city known for creating masterworks that are world-class treasures once again. The gorgeous colors and patterns of this rug stand out as a testimony that they succeeded.
The works of Haji Jalili are known for lighter color palettes that include grays, pinks, golden yellows, and delicate blues. They have a feeling that is calm and balanced. The workmanship is carried out with precision, and these masterpieces have a fine weave, which allows for a high level of detail in the design. This breathtaking piece uses an allover design with formal corners and complex, contrasting borders. This comes together to create a piece that is soft and graceful. The design of the rug is Jalili’s interpretation of the traditional herati design. Herati means “fish” and is a sign of luck and prosperity.
