Antique Tabriz Hadji Jalili carpet, Azerbaijan, NW Iran, 4'4" x 5'10"
In counterpoint to the dramatic “giants” of Claremont collection, this perfectly
faceted rug possesses an intimacy that is equally alluring. Its serene
palette of golden hues and secondary tones is perfectly balanced with its
delicately drawn lines. Negative space in the field creates dimension and
accentuates the harmony of its design. Created by the master carpet
designer, Hadji Jallili, this quiet classical gem has been preserved in
extraordinarily good condition.
