Antique Tabriz carpet, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 9'11" x 13'3"

Offering a subtle earth-toned underlayment for a sophisticated room, this well preserved antique Tabriz carpet brings a dignified buoyancy to its palace size dimensions. Its ivory field is elaborated with time-softened hues of clay, maize, and azure. The elegant border is based on a seldom seen mocha tone. A diminutive overall field design artistically veils the medallion and corner piece format, while preserving its classical beauty.
