A fine Tabriz carpet

The workshop of Haji Jalili was the most prominent in Tabriz.

12ft. 4ins. x 8ft. 7ins.


This superb example demonstrates the art of fine carpet weaving in the traditional

manner. The design derives from the classical medallion carpets, popular during

the reign of Shah Abbas I ( 1588-1629), from the Safavid period of Persia.
