Antique Haji Jalili Tabriz rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 3'9" x5'6"
The ingenious composition of graceful vinery encircling the center medallion
and the wide series of borders distinguish this rug created by the workshops
of the master carpet designer, Hadji Jallili. Muted, yet warm, earth tones
compose the wonderfully subdued palette.
