Antique Persian Tabriz Rug BB6086 10'0" × 12'10"
This circa-1920 antique Persian Tabriz rug features an intricate all-over design of floral abstractions, arabesques, palmettes and curling vines in varying shades of beige and brown against a field of abrashed sea green. Staples of Oriental rug weaving, such as the boteh – a paisley shape representing a leaf or a pinecone – can be noted in the main border of the antique carpet. 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. (SOLD)
