A classic example of an Antique Persian Tabriz Rug from the Hadji Jalili weaving house. The rug features a soft pink ground with an ornate circular central medallion filled with flowers and palmettes. These motifs continue into the multiple borders of the rug, with creams, browns, pinks and small additions of yellow colours delineating the patternation.
Tabriz Rugs are made around the city of Tabriz and are amongst the finest quality Persian Rugs that you can find. This is shown in the construction of this Hadji Jalili Tabriz Rug. The Hadji Jalili weaving house was renowned for exceptional quality rugs from the mid-19th century and through to the early 20th century, with mixes of pinks, creams and browns often found in these rugs. This rug is a classic example of such a piece and was woven by master craftspeople using beautifully soft, fine wool. As such, it has stood the test of time, being in very good overall condition with minor signs of wear. However, there is fading to the colours in some areas of the borders where the rug has been laid in daylight for prolonged periods.
The softness underfoot and colours of this Antique Persian Hadji Jalili Tabriz Rug are well suited to classic interiors with period features. The rug is an excellent complimentary design piece for bedrooms, living rooms and private studies.
