Antique Mostofi Design Blue Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – This lovely antique carpet, a blue mostofi design Tabriz rug which was woven in Persia right around the turn of the twentieth century, is such a refined and a beautiful example. Vertical columns of sand colored spiral vine scrolls — impeccably integrated throughout — undulate across a beautifully contrasting deep blue field in this lush antique Persian Tabriz rug. These vine scrolls perfectly enclose wreaths and fine sprays of tiny flowers throughout the field, while the vines themselves display a striking combination of curling rhythm and dynamic angularity. The overall effect is a vital, kinetic tension to the overall composition. The border of this antique mostofi design blue Persian Tabriz rug utilizes a similar fusion of opposites, creating a beautiful energy — impeccably rendered in soft, beautiful sandy tones which contrast strikingly against the deep blue hue of the field.
