Vintage Persian Tabriz Rug BB7285 12'10" × 20'0" $120,000
A late 19th Century antique Persian Tabriz rug featuring traditional Oriental floral designs and arabesques in muted multicolor, with a soft, faded patina. Originating in the city of Tabriz, the Azerbaijani-populated city in the north west of Iran, this antique Persian carpet is part of an ancient and multifaceted rug-weaving tradition. Tabriz boasts one of the oldest Persian carpet weaving centers and makes a huge diversity of types of carpets, with especially fine knot density (indicative of high quality of hand-knotted antique rugs) and strings materials typically made of cotton or silk. The Iranian region is famous worldwide as a large and influential carpet-making center, and played a significant role in developing the rich traditions of decorative and applied arts. Collectors’ items such as this antique Tabriz rug are typical products of this historic craft.
