Fine antique Persian Tabriz silk carpet 16’3″ x 24’4″
In the 19th century a movement began in Persia to create rugs akin in caliber to those of the Safavid Court.
This extremely unique & unusual 19th century silk-on-silk Tabriz is a celebration & testament to the history and culture of carpet weaving dating back to the 16th century.
The design follows suit to two of the most famous carpets in history: The Twin Ardabil carpets.
The enormity in size and 100% pure silk construction in very fine weave make this quite an exceptional piece. Heavy use of green dominating the field makes this carpet far more rare, as green typically is a color reserved for only the most of weaving.
This carpet embodies the highest reverence to the twin Ardabil carpets we have ever seen, with unparalled design accuracy to the originals.
