Antique Persian Tabriz Rug BB6040 7'0" × 9'6" $15,000
This circa-1920 antique Persian Tabriz silk rug features an ornate beige central medallion containing the herati pattern as well as floral and geometric abstractions. Surrounding designs, such as the boteh – a paisley shape representing a leaf or a pinecone that is a staple of Oriental rug weaving – add to the intricacy of the antique carpet with its field of rust. 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.
