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.
