Tabriz

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

The earliest surviving carpets with central medallions are thought to have been woven in Tabriz during the late 15th century. This fine Tabriz is the product of the Persian rug weaving renaissance of the late 19th century. While aesthetically it is removed centuries from its classical predecessors, it has preserved the fundamental sense of expanse and cosmos that is the essence of classical Persian medallion design. As opposed to framing a section of a repeat pattern (the principal that underlies classical Ottoman Turkish medallion carpets), this piece is organized around a kaleidoscopic expanse emanating from the small central hexagonal medallion. The borders restrain an ever enlarging expanse. Each section is drawn with a delicate lattice that renders blossoms, palmettes, and foliage in the classic 'Herati' pattern. Unlike the many acid washed mid-century pieces offered throughout the market, this piece is an actual antique Tabriz.
