Intriguing and beguiling, this eye catching carpet presents a beautiful twist on the legendary royal Shah Abbas design. It is directional in orientation having axial rather than biaxial symmetry, meaning left and right reflect one another but top and bottom don't. The cream field is dominated by meandering and curving vines executed in a very sweet light blue, from which handsome roses and geraniums in pinks and reds grow. Lovebirds and parrots pop up here and there to add even more zing to the composition. The drawing has incredible complexity and is the work of a remarkably talented master artist. The French style border reflects the Qajar court's obsessions with the arts of the court of Napoleon III in France. L'Empire Des Roses indeed!

What our customers say!

As a carpet collector of 30 years, I have noticed a decline in the amount of truly unique and high quality carpets on the market. I have also noted a decline in the knowledge of merchants, generally. Hadi Maktabi stands against this trend as a both a curator for and an educator of his clients. His offerings are well-researched, museum quality carpets that are both singular and expertly chosen. In dealing with Hadi, I have experienced excellent communication, a high standard of service and extremely pleasant interactions. Warren D., Hong Kong 🇭🇰



“You don’t just buy a rug from Dr Maktabi... It’s an experience, a rich one! You learn about history, culture & art. And more importantly you feel euphoric!” Dr Siamak Abolhassani, Expert Medical Care Clinics, Victoria, Australia 🇦🇺


The idea of purchasing valuable rugs and other artwork online from an overseas seller is daunting for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that, not being able to examine and feel the rug for yourself, you are never entirely certain that the origin, age or condition of the rug corresponds with the dealer’s description. For me, I could never take this step unless I had absolute trust in the integrity of the dealer, and my recent experience with Hadi confirms that my faith in him was well placed. Every detail of the antique rug expertly explained by Hadi was accurate and when I finally received the actual rug, it turned out to be even more stunning than his photos depicted. F.
