Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – Embodying the refined elegance of Islamic geometry and Persia’s classic Safavid patterns, this delightful antique rug from Tabriz features an outstanding latticework field adorned with traditional floral motifs. Heavily decorated borders filled with floriferous vine-scrolls and opulent guard bands decorated with an assortment of reciprocating motifs create a regal frame that tempers the simplistic shrubs and floral sprays that are featured within the field. Beautifully outlined tiles with ogival curves and stepped edges create a classical tile pattern that continues across the background. Each decorative cell with its softly colored ground and intricately detailed outlines features a botanical diorama with pendulous vines, branching trees and flowering shrubs that continue through the edges of the field. This exquisite antique Persian rug from Tabriz uses classical colors, traditional architectural patterns and ancient geometric principles that have an ageless grace.
