Antique Tabriz Hadji Jalili carpet, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 3'11" x 5'11"
This wonderfully refined piece, with deeply time-softened colors in perfect
counterpoint to a dramatic shield medallion, would be the ideal companion to
fine antique furniture. Its refined palette of soft earth tones is seldom
encountered in antique carpets, but is the hallmark of the rugs in the
esteemed Hadji Jallili style.
