Vintage Persian Tabriz Blue and Light Brown Handwoven Wool Carpet BB5720 10'0" × 13'0" $18,000
This circa-1920 antique Northwest Persian Tabriz rug features an elaborate all-over lattice design consisting of multicolored stepped lozenges – equilateral diamond-shaped patterns – in shades of blue, sand and light brown. The lattice framework is a classic feature of antique Persian rugs. The famous textile-manufacturing city of Tabriz, the Azerbaijani-populated province in the north west of Iran, boasts one of the antique carpet 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 beautiful 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.
