Antique Persian Tabriz Rug BB7569 12'0" × 18'2" $120,000
This early 20th-century Persian rug was made in Tabriz, the capital of the northwestern Iranian province of Azerbaijan, which for centuries has been the center of Persian culture and the most important weaving center in Persia. The rug’s abrashed camel field carries an overall design of delicate floral sprays, enclosed within a dark brown scrolling vinery border.
In addition to its artistic value, this antique Persian rug can boast of exceptional workmanship. It was carefully hand-knotted out of wool by a skilled artisan in accordance with traditional techniques. Thanks to such execution, this antique Persian rug still looks as if it was just taken down from the looms. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
