TABRIZ "VASE RUG", Northwest Persian
4' 6" x 6' 0"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Winter 2019 New Acquisition“) This 125-year-old Tabriz art carpet presents an astonishing list of virtually-never-seen attributes: prized Vase format rendered with one-of-a-kind creativity, coveted Hadji Jallili provenance, and featuring a collection of enthralling harvest themed colors that have never been explored with this virtuosity. The visual feast begins with the grand scaled Vase device, then continues upward with slender, fanciful boughs to a pointed mihrab arch of midnight indigo likely representing the nighttime sky. Vase-formed bases of elegant columns ascend, each encircled by incredible naturalistic vinery. Warm striated ochre, sand, apricot, saffron, mulberry and soft celadon make this sensory experience even more atmospheric and captivating. Learn About This Rug Type
