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.
