Antique Tabriz Rug by Haji Jalili, Persia, Late 19th Century – This exquisite antique Tabriz recalls the great classical Persian carpets designed for the Shahs and their courts. It is not easy to achieve the serene balance between opulent detail and reserved elegance that this carpet displays. The central medallions and the cornerpieces of the field are rich with intricate arabesque ornament that plays off wonderfully against the tranquil ivory ground, Rows of botehs or paisley surround the whole field like a penetrable frame, defying our notions of space and limitation, and making a gentle transition to the finely detailed borders that actually enclose the field.
