Persian Tabriz Wool Area Rug
A vintage hand-knotted Persian Tabriz area rug. This wool pile rug is rendered in an abrashed palette of madder red, sky blue, coffee, tangerine, slate grey, rose, and white. It begins with a cruciform infilled with palmettes, which is enclosed by a polyagonal pendant medallion. The curvilinear field is populated with geometric racemes and extends to white spandrels weighted with geometric tree of life motifs. Framing the field are carnation meander guard borders, while the primary border displays a stylized herati pattern over indigo. It is finished with overcast selvedges and cotton warp fringe.
