Antique Persian Tabriz Rug Description:
An finely woven Antique Persian Tabriz Rug that has gently faded with time creating a soft palette of blues and corals with Ivory. The motifs are typical Tabriz symbols of geometric florals.
Tabriz, the capital of the northwestern Iranian province of Azerbaijan, has for centuries enjoyed a great reputation as a center of Persian culture. Under the benign patronage of Shah Abbas the Great (1587-1629), artists and artisans designed illuminated manuscripts, embroidered silks, painted miniatures and fabricated metal work in the Safavid style. It was in this fertile, creative atmosphere that the weavers of Antique Persian rugs for the Court were inspired to reach for new artistic heights and created exceptional oriental antique kilim rugs and carpets.
