. . .

 With some scattered areas of lower pile in places, it has some minimal wear.  The structure of the carpet is very good indeed, with no holes or repairs or damage. The pile height is medium to low all over, but it would never have been very high as more often a Tabriz carpets wool pile were cut low and fine to show off these complex designs.

The Mustafi design we can see on this Tabriz carpet is famous one in carpet weaving, as the Persian prime minister in the late 19th Century commissioned artisans to create a scrolling spiralling version of the ‘Gol Farang’ (which is a foreign flower; inspired by French and English florals) pattern that was immensely popular at the time.  This Mustafi design was used in Mahal carpets woven in Sultanabad and occasionally Tabriz pieces such as this carpet.  Ziegler & Co had inspired and created decorative floral carpets woven in Sultanabad in the late 19th century, other workshops locally followed suit and these designs were made in competition to theirs.

Tabriz carpets from Northwest Persia are distinguished by their excellent weave and by their remarkable adherence to the classical traditions of Persian rug design, but they cannot be distinguished by any particular pattern or by their coloration. Tabriz rugs offer classical medallion designs and a host of allover patterns as well in every color imaginable, from brilliant rich tones to soft pastels.
