A Persian Tabriz room size rug with lamb wool and very fine weave. One of the highest quality in terms of design, the material used and workmanship from Tabriz fine workshops. One in an “identical pair” 1221 and 1222(one-inch longer). The Persian Tabriz carpet features a diamond center medallion in cream color with repeating series contrasting diamond motifs with repetitive Herati designs set in a dark blue field. The classic Mahi (Fish in Persian) design is copied in other workshops in the region and in other countries. The challenge for a true collector is finding one that is “the original” and not a mere copy. It makes a tremendous difference and it clearly shows when one sees the rug from upfront.
