Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet

Antique Persian Tabriz Carpet


465 x 322 cm


This antique Persian Tabriz carpet dates to around 1900.

Large and small flower heads in a great range of colours, including several shades of blue, green and yellow decorate the field on a red ground in an allĀ  over design. The main border on a blue ground features the same flower heads found in the field. It is flanked by two minor borders on a pale yellow ground. The effect of the composition is that of great balance and sweet, but unobtrusive cheerfulness.

The relative subtlety of the colours, combined with the even spread of floralĀ  motifs and the large scale of this room size carpet make this Tabriz a very desirable, decorative furnishing carpet.

It is woven in wool on a cotton foundation and is over all in very good condition, with a few areas of very slight wear.
