Haji Jalili has been a sought-after name in the world of Persian rug making since the 1880s. His works were prized among the royal and noble echelons of society. The master weaver’s Tabriz rugs are greatly coveted for their rich copper coloration, elaborate floral and medallion designs and high-grade weave quality. A large silk Tabriz rug by Haji Jalili is a key highlight of the upcoming sale at Nazmiyal Auctions. The 140-year old rare piece features finely-detailed floral motifs in pink, grey, periwinkle, and salmon hues. The use of silk fibers lends a distinct lustrous character and durability.
Another noteworthy Persian antique on offer is a carpet made in Kerman, a major weaving center known for the suppleness of its weaves. Classy pale blue, ivory and rust colors are used to portray vines, florals, and Saz-style leaves. With a vertical and horizontal symmetry, the design brings a sense of balance and harmony to the layout. A huge rug made by the famous Ziegler weavers of Sultanabad also leads the listings. The 19th-century carpet exemplifies the Ziegler style with its expansive rectangular field decorated with a combination of natural and geometric elements.
