moreThis is an antique hand made silk Persian Tabriz rug in beige shades. It features very detailed ornaments in burgundy and azure colors. The rug was damaged by age, but is still an extraordinary masterpiece. The rug is also a bit oxidized and that's why it has some shiny lines when it is laying at a specific angle to the light. It was made from 100% high quality silk.
Different types of carpets were made here, including pile and flat-weave, with simple and complex compositions. The carpet making art was passed on from generation to generation and was considered the most valued heirloom. The traditional themes for Tabriz carpets are the ornamental patterns, with the following dominant background colors: cream, red, or navy blue.
The most typical for this school are rugs and carpets grouped under the common name “Lachak turanj”. In the middle of the center field and in the corners of the carpet (“lachak”)(Persian: لچک triangle) there are “turanj”(Persian: ترنج Citron). The turanj in the center of the carpet is a symbol of the Moon, and the pattern formed by lozenges with the toothed leaves on the edges symbolizes the scales of the fish, which rise to the surface of the water at midnight to admire the Moon reflection. The origin of this composition dates back to the 9th-10th centuries.
Often the topics for the Tabriz carpets are drawn from the works of the great Oriental poets. The carpets often depict the scenes of falconry or images of a ferocious lion. Well known also are Tabriz carpet-pictures with images of fragments of palaces and mosques and scenes of battles. Often, ornamental pattern carpet weavers were inspired by the hand-painted covers of ancient books. less
