Antique Tabriz Hadji Jalili rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 13'2" x 18'9"
Very large antique Tabrizes with soft, earth tone hues are quite few and far
between as well as in great demand. The extremely generous width of this
ethereal piece makes it a far more seldom found item. Its palette is
wonderfully understated and its design serene and well balanced. A singular,
elegant piece with its profusion of rare powder blue. Its unusually good
condition is yet another strong suit.
