Antique Tabriz Hadji Jalili rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 6'11' x9 '9"
The luminary carpet designer, Hadji Jallili, is among the most famous names
associated with the "Second Golden Age of Persian Weaving.” Influenced by
European and Romantic art, as well as classical Persian design, his carpets
are unique: lush, lyrical and contemplative. This enrapturing piece
maintains exceptional balance amongst its myriad floral displays, all gently
imbued with a spectrum of time-softened hues.
