Such magnificent and fascinating art works as this antique Persian Tabriz rug are exceptionally hard to come across. Its outstanding design is a result of the incredible artistry and experience of the weaving masters which have been honed for many centuries, as Tabriz is one of the oldest and most renowned weaving centers in the world.

The truly vast main field of this Persian rug flaunts an incredibly detailed and dense floral design featuring millefleur, rosettes and palmettes interconnected by vines and stylized acanthus leaves. Everything is enclosed by an equally gripping series of botanical-themed borders with further palmettes, acanthus leaves and flowering climbers. The rich and contrasting color palette complements this thriving composition. Soft and serene tones of beige prevail in the main field supported by touches of dusty green, blue and orange. On the other hand, the borders present a more aggressive coloration boasting the combination of dark navy and fiery carmine.

Next to the mesmerizing appearance, this antique Tabriz rug distinguishes itself with impeccable execution. It was carefully knotted by hand by an apt artisan of the best quality wool. Due to such diligent making, it has survived until this day looking as if it just came down of the looms. Under the condition of proper maintenance, the antique rug will be of flawless service to its owners for many generations.
