Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet Description:
An early 20th century Persian rug patterns, the honey field a subtle allover trellis of swirling flowering vinery, palmettes and cloudbands within a palmette border.
Tabriz, the capital of the northwestern Iranian province of Azerbaijan, has for centuries enjoyed a great reputation as a center of Persian culture. Under the benign patronage of Shah Abbas the Great (1587-1629), artists and artisans designed illuminated manuscripts, embroidered silks, painted miniatures and fabricated metal work in the Safavid style. It was in this fertile, creative atmosphere that the weavers of Tabriz rugs for the Court were inspired to reach for new artistic heights and created exceptional antique oriental rugs and carpets.
