Antique Tabriz Persian Rug 42103
Finely detailed guard bands and archetypal Kufic borders frame the fantastic latticework field of this early 20th century Persian carpet, which features the strong angular geometry that Tabriz is known for.
Antique Tabriz Rug, Persia, Early 20th Century – This antique rug — a breath-taking Tabriz from early 20th century Persia, is an extraordinary piece that possesses some of the most desirable and sought after qualities in such a rug. Its gorgeous all-over network design and its bold “Kufic” border are well-known characteristics of the so-called Zeichour scatter rugs of the Eastern Caucuses. However, it is very much worth noting that these particular characteristics — especially as they are in this piece — are without parallel in Persian room-sized rugs of this type. The palette of this marvelous rug is cunningly restricted to beautiful, soft golds, blues, and mauves, which serve to make it an excellent decorative rug — despite the opulent detail and richness of the design graphics throughout the piece.
