Antique Tabriz Hadji Jallili rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 9'1" x 13'3"

Exceptional refinement and a subtle, nuanced palette underscores the unparalleled artistic mastery of the renown Hadji Jallili workshop of Tabriz. Here exquisitely drawn nimble floral tracery endows the stately medallion and cornerpieces with an air of elegance. Outstanding condition provides an added level of splendor to this infinitely luxurious piece from the Charlottesville couple.
