The ‘Coronation’ Tabriz Petag

Description

The “Persische Teppich Gesellschaft A.G.” (PETAG) was a German company founded in Berlin in 1911 by the scholar/dealer Heinrich Jacoby (1889-1964). PETAG opened a large workshop in Tabriz, Northwestern Persia, in the 20s and during the interwar era carpets of superb quality were woven by skilled Persian masters. Most of the design were inspired by early Safavid Persian designs. PETAG carpets are identified by their use of particularly lustrous kurk lamb’s wool, natural vegetal dyes and their distinctive ‘signature’ formed of three çintamani pearls arranged in a triangular formation, often located in the far corner of the field or border pattern.

This breathtaking and large specimen displays a stunning  design inspired by the so-called ‘Coronation carpet’, an early 1500s Persian carpet, woven in the early staged of the Safavid era and now part of the LACMA museum collection in Los Angeles. The piece is in excellent condition for its age.
