Antique Hadji Jallili Tabriz rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 4' x5'7"
The work of the acclaimed court designer, Hadji Jallili, this masterful
piece exemplifies his breathtaking level of refinement and originality. Its
exquisite vase design is very seldom found in rugs of this style, and sets
nuanced garlands, curling boughs, and cypress trees beneath a carefully
aligned arch. A resonant, time-softened palette, including sand, terra
cotta, and coral tones, amplifies its captivating artistry.
