Antique Persian Tabriz Rug 47064
Intricate, elegant and richly colored, this glorious antique Tabriz rug epitomizes the extreme beauty and sophistication of Persian and Safavid design traditions.
Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920 – This arresting antique Persian rug from the legendary carpet looms of Tabriz is an exemplary work of art that represents technical prowess and the height of Safavid-influenced designs, all in a monumental, highly coveted palace-sized format. Flaming Shah Abbasi palmettes, polychrome saz leaves and dimensional vine-scrolls leap off of the saturated midnight blue ground. This brilliant juxtaposition of contrasting colors and fine white outlines give each grand palmette and dainty floret a luminous, hyper-stylized presence. Spiraling vine-scrolls effortlessly circle the grand Shah Abbasi palmettes and support a multitude of heavy floral decorations that are carefully colored, outlined and shaded. The impressive terra-cotta main borders are superbly detailed and display an equally gorgeous array of classical colors and superfluous Safavid-influenced designs that are balanced, perfectly formed and set the standard of elegance.
