Antique Tabriz Hadji Jallili rug, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 4'3" x 6'3", Claremont Rug Company


This 150-year-old piece vividly demonstrates why the exquisite rugs from the workshops of the master carpet designer, Hadji Jallili, are among the most admired of all Court style rugs. Its unique soft coral field and subtle earth tones stand in perfect counterpoint to its dramatic, midnight indigo blue cruciform medallion.
