Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This gorgeous antique rug — a Tabriz from late nineteenth century Persia — is a truly wonderful piece of craftsmanship. Characterized by a trellis design of flowers and large rosettes in lovely shades of reds, pale blues, and rose that envelope a small central medallion and beautiful corner pieces — all set against a pale aubergine ground — this beautiful piece may be small, but it is something close to a masterwork. The relatively large rosettes and the relative small size of the medallion help to create the impression of an all-over design. Fine vine scroll borders provide a contrast to the scale of field design, while preserving its splendid coloration. This gorgeous rug is a unique work of art that represents a true achievement in contrast and in overall design.
