Small Antique Persian Tabriz Scatter Size Carpet 47482
This hauntingly beautiful scatter sized Tabriz is a fascinating study in juxtaposition, featuring a wholly unadorned field of ivory, against which an impressively elaborate central medallion is set.
Antique Persian Tabriz Scatter Size Rug, Persia, c. 1880 – Sometimes, it is in small pieces that artistic prowess is most clearly visible. This scatter size Persian rug from Tabriz, measuring two feet wide by three feet long, is a splendid example of this phenomenon. For while each of the masterfully executed aesthetic flourishes and embellishments evident in this remarkable little rug have certainly been accomplished on larger size pieces, the setting for them here is on sufficiently small a scale that they are immediately apparent, even to a less-trained eye. Elaborate detail work pervades the gorgeous, classically designed border that frames the central field of this antique rug, giving int the immediate impression of classical beauty. And while not belied by the unadorned field of ivory, this tack is certainly put into a different context: juxtaposition rather than symbiosis. All of the contrasts in this remarkable little rug come together to create a piece that is greater than the sum of its parts, and that is a truly beautiful, representative antique Tabriz rug.
