Antique Persian Silk Tabriz Prayer Rug, Origin: Persia – This magnificent antique silk Tabriz rug features a handsome Tree of Life vase framed by a graceful directional mihrab. Narrow strapwork guardbands and fiery terra-cotta main borders featuring icy blue palmettes and floral fans encircle the elegant field. This classical, well-composed design features restrained curvilinear decorations that highlight the sumptuous monochrome ground and saturated, slightly abrashed hues. The regal Tree of Life centerpiece has a delicate, airy style emphasized by the intricate scrollwork accents and filamentous outlines. Arching floral sprays and the ogival curves of the handsome mihrab harmoniously grow together while leaving a plush barrier of open ground that accentuates the juxtaposition of fiery oranges and cool marine blues. This elegant, beautifully appointed Persian rug has a delicate floral style that is emboldened by the regal high-chroma colors.
