A Beautiful and Finely Woven Oversized Antique Tabriz Carpet That Features The Iconic Persian Vase Design, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: 1910 – Tabriz is a city that has a long history of producing some of the most beautiful carpets in the world. It was once home to the weavers who created the carpets that graced the halls of the Royal Courts of the Safavid Dynasty. This carpet has a vase pattern, which is one of the designs that made the Tabriz weavers famous. This breathtaking piece was created around 1910.
The Persian vase design was inspired by the famous formal gardens of the Safavid Court. These designs can have one vase overflowing with flowers or many of them across the rug in an all-over pattern. They are a striking design, and many of them have a midnight blue background that is reminiscent of the night sky. This rug has the appearance of a moon-kissed garden under the stars.
The end of the 19th century marked a time of change for the weavers of Tabriz and for the Persian carpet industry as a whole. At that time, there was a concerted effort among many of the larger carpet weaving centers to restore the industry to its former power and glory. During that time, some of the most famous carpet artists made their home in Tabriz. Masters such as Kurgan Dai, Hadji Jalili, and Sheik Safi created carpets that had a significant influence on other weavers in the area.
After the first part of the 20th century, no more vase designs were produced, which makes them a rare find and an excellent addition to a collection. This gorgeous piece is elegant and refined. The intricate design reflects a high knot count and a high level of skill in the weavers.
It would make an excellent addition to a Boho chic room or for a Shabby chic style, too. This rug inspires the imagination. It will be the focal point of the room and makes the perfect piece to serve as the foundation of the room design.
One could say that Persian rugs are currently experiencing another great renaissance in popularity. They are finding their way into a number of modern interior styles. They are no longer limited to formal dining halls, but they are found in every room of the home. They have always been a part of traditional design but are being used to add interest to contemporary designs, too. This one would make a magnificent addition to any home or office that needs a touch of classic beauty.
