Enchanting Tabriz carpet from northern Iran, displaying the less common semi-geometric Heriz medallion motif.
Deep saturated colors including purple — burgundy, ivory, navy blue, turquoise, green, burnt orange, and peach.
The rug has been professionally washed and is ready to use. Oriental rug cleaners are typically charging $4 to $4.50 a square foot, which is around $400 for a rug this size.
Overall condition is excellent with only very minor signs of wear. Last photo shows the back of the rug.
Fringes (which have been washed to a bright white) and side cords are in great shape.
Tabriz rugs are very rugged and tough, and can be used in a high foot traffic area or under a dining room table with chairs. They last many, many decades.
Wool pile on cotton warp and weft. Tabriz rugs are cut short by the weavers to showcase the marvelous details but they are dense and durable.
Exact size is 11 ft. 8 in. by 8 ft. 2 in. 1950s — 1960s.
Tabriz produces a large number of handmade rugs — most of which are easy to distinguish from the carpets of other major rug weaving centers in Iran and Turkey.
Tabriz carpets are part of the Azerbaijan weaving tradition within modern Persia. Located in northwest Iran, Tabriz is the capital city of East Azerbaijan Province and is largely populated by ‘ethnic’ Azeri or Azerbaijanis. It is one of the oldest rug weaving centers in the world and makes a huge diversity of types of handmade rugs.
The majority of Tabriz rugs are more traditional floral rugs. This Tabriz features the less Heriz medallion motif, which is more geometric and less curvilinear.
Shipping will be $69 within the continental U.S.
