(“FALL/WINTER 2018-19 PRINT CATALOG", p. 28)
Standing at the epitome of our selection of highly esteemed antique Tabrizs, created in the workshop of luminary carpet maker, Hadji Jallili, are pieces such as this inimitable room size piece. Its graceful, sculpted lines, continually changing soft, natural tonalities and superlative craftsmanship are hallmarks of its provenance. The extraordinary golden sand field hosts a delicately toned medallion and equally subtle spandrels that are filled with exceptionally delicate embellishment. An entirely unique, nearly transparent, paired-wings motif skillfully “alights” along their contours. Even more detailed, a suite of formal borders reflects mind-boggling precision.
