4900 505 Antique Tabriz Rug, Iran 1900 16" x 32'11"
Large Oversized Palace Antique Tabriz Carpet
Item 4900 505
This stately, exquisite antique Persian Tabriz rug brings a touch of elegance to any room and home decor. Woven around the turn of the 20th century, this antique Persian rug brings a lot of character and history to the space. The herati fish design pattern is carried out in exquisite detail using only a simple palette of colors.
The large size rug features an all over design with a wide formal main border. Several unique features of the design make this antique rug stand out. The most noticeable is the difference in scale between the flowers in the field and those in the main border. The field of this large antique Tabriz rug consists of a regularly spaced array of tiny flowers that are much smaller in comparison to the flowers in the main border. Two matching guard borders surround the main border and make it stand out. This has the unusual effect of making the main border appear to be the focal point of the Tabriz rug, instead of the central design of the field. This unique treatment of design features makes this a truly one of a kind piece.
The beautiful orange, sky blue, green and ivory of the Persian Oriental rug blend beautifully to create a sophisticated and warm border design.
The graceful florals of the carpet and the attention to detail make this piece an excellent example of Tabriz rug making skills. The Persian carpet has history and a story woven into every thread. The border of the carpet uses a darker background, which frames the central design. The smaller motifs will make the room appear to be larger than it is. The pattern is repeated throughout the length of the carpet with a precision that is only found in carpets that were a part of the weaving traditions of the royal courts.
We do not know where this carpet has been, or what feet have walked upon it, but it will be a special piece for the right space. It would be perfectly at home in any traditional setting where it can once again serve as a piece to inspire awe in everyone who sees it. A piece of this size and level of detail is a rare find.
