("New Arrivals Gallery") With a sophisticated, naturally dyed palette and masterly assemblage of diminutive floral patterning, this incredibly vibrant carpet from the fabled workshops of Tabriz has an immediately mesmerizing presence. Intricate detail on a grand scale lends an equally monumental appeal commensurate with the carpet's unusually oversize dimensions. Tightly construed and elegantly proportioned rosettes and curved diamonds are joined by feathered curling leaves that suffuse across a mesmerizing field of buoyant teals, rose quartz, sapphire, and jaeger green. Shifting stadium like waves of abrash color shifts dramatically draw on and enliven the carmine red border. Its extraordinarily good condition allows each chiseled detail in this over 100-year-old oversize carpet to be seen in its full splendor and is guaranteed to provide a sumptuous richness to a diverse range of decor.
