The city of Tabriz in north west Persia has been a major city of fine rug weaving since the 14th century, possibly earlier. Antique Tabriz carpets are distinguished by their excellent weave and remarkable adherence to the traditions of classical Persian rug design.

An early Tabriz carpet with a dynamic William Morris Arts & Crafts elements, a rare feature in a workshop weaving of this type. The muted blue field provides great contrast to the grand dynamic scale of the drawing, framed a wide border and inner borders. This antique Tabriz carpet has a remarkable high density of knots which explains the clarity of its crisp drawing.

In very good practical condition for everyday use, still retaining its original inner and plain blue borders on all sides. A remarkable feature for a rug of this age.

A highly decorative example that would be a great addition to a contemporary or classic setting.
