Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1900 – This beautiful antique rug — a small antique Tabriz Persian rug from Persia (which is the modern day country of Iran)from sometime around the turn of the twentieth century — is a small but genuinely lovely rug. Form and color converge in a symphony of tan and blue on this magnificent little antique Tabriz, creating an air of harmony and melodic symmetry. From a distance, the primary impression is dark against light. Upon closer view a delicate, unifying tracery of flowers and stems appears, beautifully spreading across the whole surface, interrupted only by the outlines of bold, star-like medallions and the borders. The sparing but effective touches of terracotta add a subtle accent to the overall chiaroscuro. This is a truly exceptional Persian rug, as charming as it is expertly crafted. A testament to the quality that experts and collectors expect from a Tabriz, this rug is a real treasure.
