Antique Persian Silk Tabriz Haji Jalili Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Tradition holds that only God can make a perfect thing, but this exquisite antique Persian silk Tabriz rug certainly comes close. For sheer harmony of graphic detail and overall grandeur, this carpet has no peers, going back to the classic antique Persian rugs, masterpieces, made for the Safavid Shahs. On this carpet the traditional emphasis on rich effects of color is still at work, in contrast to the more subdued, golden palette more typical of antique Tabrizes. Beneath the delicate, lacy texture of the arabesque detail that fills the medallion and comer pieces, there is a remarkable geometric substructure of star, cruciform, and oval shapes, attesting to the masterful design of the carpet. We enjoy the rug at the surface level, but only because there is a world of complexity just beyond our view.
Because of its exceptional condition and composition, this is a antique Persian silk Tabriz rug is worthy as an investment.
