Antique Tabriz rug

Circa 1900
204 × 135 cm 6’8” x 4’5”


A very fine and elegant antique Tabriz rug, woven in the city of Tabriz, Persia, around 120 years ago. With a detailed scrolling vine design which floats around the connecting floral motifs, the expert weaver really has executed the pattern beautifully.  The weaver would have had a ‘Cartoon’ which is a drawing of the pattern, to know precisely where to place each knot.  Remarkable to think the skill these weavers had in the late 19th century, when demand for exporting Persian rugs was at a high.

Difficult to obtain this lovely pale blue dye, which really is a stunning tone that sits with the reddish brown tones and ivory whites, which add the lightness to this rug.  The weave is fine, woven on a cotton foundation and the pile height is cut very fine, with a good medium pile height all over.  Finer city rugs such as this never had a high wool pile, the intricate design would get lost otherwise.  All in all a real masterpiece of Tabriz weaving, in excellent order.

They more than often will have central medallions but like every rug, the dyes play a huge part in a rugs beauty. It is the soft muted colours combined with the well thought put design that make this rug so appealing.
