Beautiful and Finely Woven Antique Persian Tabriz Central Medallion Rug, Country of Origin / Circa Date: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Like most beautiful and expansive antique Persian Tabriz rugs, this stunning medallion rug is defined by its attention to detail. The artist painstakingly rendered a number of flowing stems, dancing petals and winding vines, all of which come together to create a naturally moving scene. The color palette is vibrant and stark, and the use of rich black results in enough contrast between the various points of contact to establish powerful outlines and clearly defined movements. Several rich borders frame around each other, leading the viewer’s eyes from the stunning elements within to the heart of the antique Persian rug, where the largest amount of activity is carefully defined within the parameters of several layered mandalas. Within the beautiful gold, black and red backdrops are several petals and decorative floral motifs that occupy the space and create a natural scene in this antique rug for the viewer to enjoy.
