Tabriz Rug, Persia – From the stylistic finesse and superb compositional skills to the quality materials and outstanding colors, this masterful antique Persian rug has all the features of a Haji Jalili masterpiece attributed to the preeminent master weaver in Tabriz. The arresting composition features a dramatic pendant-flanked medallion with reflective spandrels separated by a cushion of clear neutral earth toned ground that adds to the impact of the powerfully elegant design. The central medallion displays a spectacular assortment of soft decorators’ colors and detailed botanical designs that display contrasting veins and hairline outlines. The cushion of soft ecru ground creates a secondary medallion figure surrounded by heavily decorated inset spandrels. The detail and stylistic finesse of the clear, well-defined motifs is redoubled in the exceedingly ornate borders and guardbands, which display a lacy mesh of reciprocating vines and millefleur florals.
