Persian Tabriz Large Carpet – Oversize – Emmad Medallion

This Persian Tabriz carpet is published in;

Tabriz is particularly well known for producing carpets that
combine Eastern and Western tastes. In this mid-20th century example, the
concept of a field surrounded by borders, the field with a central medallion
and corners, is traditionally Eastern. Yet both the colour and the individual
decorative elements clearly betray Western influence, probably the style
and colouring of the great 19th century English artist, William Morris.


Persian Tabriz large carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Items of this size as considered oversize with respect to dimensions of a standard room. This design bears the Emmad Medallion and blends Eastern and Western elements seemlessly.
