Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This antique Tabriz carpet is a wonderful example of its style – generally speaking, antique Tabriz rugs and carpets are admired by collectors and aficionados of antique Oriental rugs, who celebrate these carpets for their classical beauty and superior iterations of traditional Persian design. A rich classical Persian design of palmettes and vines unfolds rhythmically across the surface of this regal antique Tabriz. The design is animated by the suave, curving contours of the the vines as they sway and spiral in symmetrical repetition. The warm, rich coloration with its soft red, pale greens, and saffrons looks especially lovely against the dramatic deep blue grey ground. The red ground border nicely complements the palette of the field. A beautifully woven example, this antique Tabriz carpet from late nineteenth century Persia is an excellent antique Oriental rug.
