The central theme of the vintage Persian rug is flowers. Vine scrolls and bouquets interlaced in various patterns and colors. The wildness of this patterns are only tamed by the central field of deep blue.

This silk and wool rug maintains a sense of well established symmetry and balance. The slender outer most guard border reflects the colors of the inner field. This little detail, ties in the design of the whole silk and wool vintage Tabriz Persian rug together and creates a wonderful sense of completeness.

The corners of the inner field push out floral blooms in a radiating pattern. Each row of flowers in the corner design are a unique set. This points to the artist’s strong attention to detail.

In most Persian rugs, we see a clear design separation in every section. The flowers in the borders are usually restricted to those specific borders. But in this silk and wool vintage Tabriz Persian rug, the floral vine scrolls meander in and out of the borders as if oblivious to their existence. This gives a unique artistic feel as if the floral elements were placed on top of the borders as opposed to inside of them. The flowers reach across the space to touch and connect with each other until it is no longer clear where one vine begins and the other ends. This organic approach to the design is quite spectacular and adds so much artistic feel and impact.

The central medallion is the crown jewel of this oeuvre d’art. A pale background brings the central pattern to life and juxtaposes beautifully against the surrounding darker color of the main field. Then the next layer of dark and light checkers augments the color contrasts, highlighting how the intricacy of design can be at the same time both stunningly simple and highly complex.

This Persian Tabriz rug is as artistically captivating as it is magnificently decorative. The highlights of silk fibers really pop against the darker colors, giving it a much more happy and whimsical feel.
