Antique Persian Tabriz Rug BB5562 10'5" × 13'5" $70,000
A finely-woven early 20th century Northwest Tabriz Persian rug, the camel field with an allover trellis of flowering vinery forming various medallion forms within a dusty rose-linked cartouche border.
Quotes from owner Nader Bolour taken from the blog of CJ Dellatore:
“Searching for an antique rug is where the design process begins for most. They are the soul of a room, all the other elements of a well-appointed space are there to celebrate it.”
“While many Persian rugs have central medallions with symmetrical designs – and typical coloration based in reds and blues, this rug is woven quite differently. It’s a true work of art. The muted rose background, and range of colors, coupled with the asymmetry of the gardens, borders, poems and prayers amalgamated within, make it a remarkable specimen. It’s subtle and exceptionally sophisticated.”
“When I consider making a purchase of an antique rug such as this, I envision a designer who will respond to it. I’ve learned over the years that provenance is far less important than aesthetics – and the visceral reaction a designer has to the color, abrash, motifs, and subtle nuances in the overall design.”
