Antique Tabriz Hadji Jallili rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 7'5" x 10'9"

Hadji Jallili Tabriz
3rd quarter, 19th century
7ft 5in X 10ft 8in
One of the true gems of the Venetian Palazzo Collection is this extremely finely detailed Tabriz from the renowned workshop of master carpet designer, Hadji Jallili. The art of abrash (intentional color striation) is so rarely mastered to such a degree, offering a sense of tremendous visual depth.
