Tabriz, a major city in Northwest Persia near the Turkish border, is known for its classically styled antique carpets handwoven since the 15th century. These carpets have maintained high technical standards as well as a wide variety of repertoires. Antique Tabriz rugs come in every shade from brilliant rich colors to soft pastels, offering classical medallion designs and allover patterns. They are highly regarded for their quality, which distinguishes them from other Persian rugs. In the upcoming Midwinter Auction, presented by 1stbid, an antique Tabriz rug will be a key focus. The available Tabriz rug features the squinch and dome pattern depicted in Persian mosques with a highly detailed example of a radiating medallion surrounded by a series of irregular pentagons.
Antique Persian rugs and carpets in the sale also include an antique Bakhtiari rug— named after the Bakhtiari nomads, native to the Zagros mountains near Isfahan. Lobed and pointed ivory medallions, with fat cartouche ivory pendants featuring tiny, abbreviated clouds, adorn this Persian rustic rug. Bakhtiari carpets are made from strong, durable wool and are among the strongest Persian rugs. Find the listed items as well as other online auctions on Bidsquare.
