Antique Tabriz, Persia, circa 1900. An exceptionally fine Herati pattern unfolds with meticulous precision across the field of this incomparable antique Tabriz. The palette is exceedingly soft, so that only the details in aubergine stand out amidst the complex minutia of the design. The main border is especially unusual, consisting as it does of eight-pointed cartouches filled with inscriptions. The consistent palette applied in field and border alike endow the composition with a wonderful visual unity despite the variations in design detail, making this a first-rate decorative piece as well as a genuine work of art.
