Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet BB6814
Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet Description:
This circa-1920 antique Persian Tabriz carpet features an all-over design of floral abstractions, palmettes and arabesques in shades of brown and cream against a field of blue. Shapes such as the boteh, a paisley design representing a leaf or a pinecone and a staple of Antique area rugs weaving, can be seen throughout the persian rug. The famous textile-manufacturing city of Tabriz, the Azerbaijani-populated province in the north west of Iran, boasts one of the oldest rug weaving centers in the world and produces a large variety of carpets characterized by having an especially fine knot density (indicative of high quality hand-knotted rugs).
An antique Tabriz rug can be made of cotton or silk and woven as a pile carpet or flat-weave. 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.\n
