Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet BB6813 12'5" × 21'0" $100,000
This early 20th Century antique Persian Tabriz carpet features an all-over abstracted garden design in hues of beige, terracotta and copper against a field of light green. The finished patina makes for a muted color palette characteristic of oriental carpets. The famous textile-manufacturing city of Tabriz, the Azerbaijani-populated province in the north west of Iran, boasts one of the antique 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 Antique Persian 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.
