Fine Antique Green Cypress Tree Prayer Design Persian Tabriz Rug 51111
Soft Calming and Beautiful Antique Green Cypress Tree Oversized Prayer Design Tabriz Persian Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920’s – This antique Persian Tabriz rug features an inviting variety of tones, combining comfortable warm colors with natural earthy ones to establish a soothing and lovely color palette. The largest border of this Persian rug showcases a beautiful earthy sheen, made all the more visible through the clever use of outlining borders, which are designed with a warmer color palette to create stronger contrasting forms between the two. At the very center of the antique Persian rug, a repeating pattern dominates the landscape, broken up only at the upper edge, where a diagonal archway stands out against the surfacing. A vibrant collection of cypress trees designs and shrubs defines the landscape of this beautiful and refined rug, connected through the use of smaller stems and leaves.
What makes this piece even more unique is the fact that it was created using the famed mihrab design that we see in Islamic prayer design rugs. Since they would need to be carried, the prayer design area rugs are small. This large example of the iconic design is indicative of a custom made rug – someone probably saw a small version of this rug and commissioned it to be woven in a larger room size.
Another aspect that makes this piece such a unique example is the use of the magnificent greens. Green in area rugs is a very rare color. That is because of the costs associate with cultivating and creating the green dyestuff colors as only a master dyer would be able to create a beautiful shade of green.
Area rugs like this are exciting finds. For people who are buying area rugs and want high quality rugs that are extremely finely woven and that boast a more unique design with soft calming colors, this antique oversized prayer design Persian Tabriz rug would make a phenomenal option.
