Persian Tabriz Antique Rug
Persian Tabriz Antique Rug Description:
This circa-1930 antique Persian Tabriz rug features an intricate all-over design of floral abstractions, arabesques and serrated leaves in shades of ice blue against a field of reddish-orange. A thick main border in beige with recurring floral motifs in inky blue completes the look 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.
