Large Size Mahi Fish Design Finely Woven Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – A mesmerizing and ornate mahi fish design pattern marches across the central pale orange field of this antique Persian rug. Darker orange strokes mingle with black accents, which crest the petals of numerous flowers and form the lobes of slim leaves. Each element is perfectly balanced, leaving no space empty but still forming a light and airy pattern. The design repeats across the length and breadth of this antique Persian Tabriz rug, filling the warm-toned central area. Two pairs of three bands flank a wider border between them, forming a set that encloses the orderly pattern across the middle. The narrower bars on the interior and exterior are rendered in warm shades with small, graceful blossoms blooming within. The largest border of this beautiful antique rug is dark, overlaid with a contrasting, lighter decoration of ornate blossoms.
