Antique Hadji Jallili Tabriz rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 9'5" x 12'7"
This stellar room size from the revered carpet designer, Hadji Jallili,

incredibly nuanced “Garden of Paradise” design offers a stunning diversity
of intricately crafted blossoms, boughs, and garlands, animated by a
singular palette of rare, time-softened hues. The effortless dexterity and
tremendous presence that fill this masterwork demonstrate an extremely
seldom found aesthetic and technical virtuosity.
