43571 Antique Tabriz, Persia, late nineteenth century
This magnificent antique Tabriz brings to life once more the grand tradition of classical Persian court carpets. At the center of the composition is a dazzling circular medallion reminiscent of a cathedral church window. Arabesque spandrels at the four corners of the field repeat the color scheme of the medallion, while sinuous spiraling vinescrolls and a host small flowers and palmettes fill the intervening blue ground. An arabesque vinescroll main border on pale blue frames the field with flanking terracotta minor borders to unify visually with the spandrels in a larger framing effect. Tabrizes are famed for their fidelity to classical Persian weaving, but they seldom recreate the old masterpieces with such deft precision.
