Persian Tabriz Vintage Carpet BB5889 11'9" × 15'0" $75,000
This circa-1920 antique Persian Tabriz rug is a delicate display of an all-over design featuring floral abstraction motifs, palmettes and arabesques in shades of light blue against a field of beige for an overall look of classic Oriental tradition. 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 antique rugs characterized by having an especially fine knot density (indicative of high quality hand-knotted Persian carpets).
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.
