Antique Persian Tabriz Rug
Antique Persian Tabriz Rug Description:
The uniqueness of this antique Persian Tabriz rug is perhaps immediately evident in its bold gold color, offset by floral designs, abstractions and arabesques in an exotic signature style of antique oriental rugs. Coming from the rich carpet-weaving tradition of the Iranian city of Tabriz, it is an elegant collector's find. Tabriz, populated entirely by Azerbaijani citizens in the north west of Iran, boasts one of the oldest rug weaving centers and makes a huge diversity of types of carpets, with especially fine knot density (indicative of high quality of hand-knotted rugs) and strings materials typically made of cotton or silk. A refined palette reliant on copper tones, terracotta and ivory, with shades of blue and subtle touches of gold, green and salmon are prevalent in these carpets. The region has been a large and world-famous carpet-making center and played a significant role in developing the rich traditions of decorative and applied arts.
