Antique Persian Tabriz rug from Esmaili Rugs Collection: Here is a beautiful and intriguing antique Persian Tabriz by Haji Khalili. Characterized by its meticulously detailed field, this oversize Tabriz features mirrored images of peacocks throughout the quarter panels and center medallion. Immersed in Persian history, the peacock is seen as a guardian to royalty and is often seen in the engravings upon the thrones of Persian royalty. Peacocks represent renewal, holiness, nobility, integrity and beauty when we endeavor to show our true colors. Antique Tabriz carpets are renowned for their stately compositions which are strongly influenced by classical Persian aesthetics. Elegantly swirling spiral vine scrolls burgeoning with leaves and blossoms dance across the vermillion red-orange field of this stunning antique Tabriz. The exuberant details in shades of beige, brown, taupe and ivory nicely complement the red-orange field. The rustic auburn colored border provides an effective contrast while the series of guard borders gorgeously frame this magnificent composition.
