Tabriz

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Tabriz carpets have always been known for their grandeur and elegance. This majestic antique Tabriz draws a field and border with a host of animal imagery. A traditional Persian garden scene, complete with cypress trees and flowering plants, has here been updated with exotic animals such as elephants and giraffes to suit the taste of the turn of the century. In recent years, many semi-antique Tabriz carpets have been chemically stripped and violently altered to approximate the look of earlier 19th century carpets. Such harsh bleaching ultimately fails to replicate the subtle qualities of genuine antique pieces. This carpet, however, is the real thing.
