543. an inpired palace-sized antique Tabriz

Antique Tabriz Persian Carptet

543. Provenance: Tabriz, Northwest Persia

Size: 406 x 290 cm

Age: Circa 1920

Condition: Generally good, with just some areas of lower pile.

Notes: An amazing and unusual carpet, featuring a fertile abundance of agrarian scenery. Repleat with cows, sheep, deer, birds and even geese or swans, as well as a multitude of tree varieties and flowers. Lakes and ponds add to this verdant spendour. All this could be a bit much in the wrong weavers' hands, but the pale background together with the soft natural dyes in the details make this piece an oriental delight to the senses. Wool on cotton foundation
