(High-Collectible) This superlative large antique room-size Oriental carpet exemplifies the lofty standards of the Hadji Jallili (Haji Jalili) Tabriz rug style, presenting an astonishing level of craftsmanship and refinement of design. Abandoning the muted earth-tone palette that defines this style, this Persian court carpet offers a deeply saturated naturally dyed persimmon field, which is sparsely adorned to accentuate its splendor and tonal variation. At its center, a luminous sunburst medallion softly radiates, augmented by glowing golden and sand hues. Supremely sophisticated cornerpieces reprise the medallion's exquisitely detailed artistry and transition expertly into a series of extraordinarily ornate borders. (Featured in our catalog, Vol. 26.
