Tabriz, India, Contemporary – Woven in Tabriz, this elaborate Persian rug features an isolated border pattern surrounded by multiple sets of narrow guard-bands. This fantastical border pattern features reciprocating vine-scrolls and grand palmettes linked by florid vines decorated with wild animals and traditional combat scenes. Serpentine cloud-bands and minute floral motifs decorate the obscure background surrounding the grand palmettes and arching branches. Interwoven vine-scrolls featuring poly-chromatic palmettes and vermilion accents decorate the borders that surround the elongated field. Narrow borders and decorative end pieces embellished with ornamental birds perched on filamentous vine-scrolls create a final enclosure that contrasts the richly colored field.
