Antique Tabriz Hadji Jalili carpet, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 9 x 12'6"
Exquisite floral filigree, great spaciousness of design and a subtle earth
tone palette evoke an atmosphere of luxurious refinement in this landmark
carpet from the master carpet designer, Hadji Jallili. A delectable palette,
including soft mocha, sand, russet and pale celadon, is coupled with great
technical precision to create a composition that is at once supremely
decorative and profoundly artistic.
