Country of origin: Persia
Length: 335cmTabriz has for many centuries been the leading carpet trading center of Persia, lying as it does on the great Silk Route and close to the border with Turkey; the rugs knotted there have in consequence shown a style rich in innovation and international art influences which have made them among the most famous and highly regarded of all urban Persian carpets. Moreover, as is so admirably demonstrated in this outstanding specimen, the weavers of Tabriz are generally considered the most skillful in Persia, able to knot virtually any design with incomparable flair and unrivaled excellence. The superbly rendered mahi, or 'fish', herati patterning and medallion composition of this item possesses all the clarity of expression, perfect sense of proportion and wonderful handling of colour which have become synonymous with the finest Tabriz work. Hand knotted, slightly worn in places, circa 1940.
