Gorgeous And Fine Animal Design Antique Persian Tabriz Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1920 – The antique Persian Tabriz rugs are some of the most iconic of all the Persian rugs. These finely woven area rugs are known for their intricate patterns and free flowing floral rug designs. This antique Persian Tabriz rug is no exception and boasts beautifully captivating and refined flowers and animal rug designs against a soft blue grey color background.
While most of the area rug styles from Tabriz follow a traditional area rug design path, this one takes us a slightly different journey. When we think of antique Persian Tabriz rugs, words like structure and symmetry tend to come to mind. But as one can see, this antique Persian Tabriz rug has a far more organic free flowing and artistic approach with no real design symmetry. Even the border is quite unusual as the designs from the main border can be seen flowing into and out of the secondary smaller flanking area rug borders.
This departure from the expected is something that we normally associate with area rugs that were costume made based on the specific needs and wants of the customer. Further supporting this hypothesis is the fact that many of the animals the we see depicted in the rug are not local to Tabriz specifically or to Persia at larger. Some of these animals are actually mythological creatures that tend to be more closely associated with more western approaches and tastes.
Area rugs like this are facinating and are enchanting pieces of textile fiber arts that are sure to spark the imagination. For people who are in the process of shopping for area rugs for their home, especially those individuals that want something that is more unique and different the this animal design antique Persian Tabriz rug is one that should warrant serious consideration.
