Finely Woven and Decorative Large Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persia Rugs, Circa Date: First Quarter of The 20th Century – A range of light and dark shades of brown contrasts on this antique rug with a creamy hue to create a complex pattern over the surface of this antique Persian rug. An oval diamond containing an exquisite eight-petaled flower and delicate filigree of stitch work is surrounded by a dark brown background, an elegant contrast with scalloped edges. A profusion of blossoms fills the dark area and the surrounding lighter field, alternating light and dark decorations. The broad border is separated into several bands, the widest at the center full of a looping, repeating design. Tiny, simple flowers fill the smaller bars, delicate stitches picking out their accents.
