Antique Tabriz, Persia, late nineteenth centuryA fine lace-like ‘Herati’ pattern in ivory and autumn tones repeats with absolute precision across the rich chocolate ground of this lovely antique Tabriz. The drawing is so controlled that it suggests latent patterns of intersecting circles and diamonds across the entire design. Multiple floral borders continue the effect of infinite geometric repetition as well as the pleasing juxtaposition of chocolate and earthy orange tones. The weave is incredibly fine, as the minuteness of the design indicates.
