Qajar opulence from the royal workshops of Tehran in the late 19th century. This masterpiece boasts all silk flowers and a dense field with majestic motifs. The allover design is known as Shah Abbasi and contains remarkable richness of detail in its palmettes and arabesques with crenellated lotus palmettes and scrolling cloud bands sprawling symmetrically and elegantly across its rich red field. The impact is amplified with the shimmering silk of all the major field elements. The base colors combine magnificently with the deep blue border to create an unforgettable effect which is of remarkable functionality in various types and styles of interiors. The pile is very lush and the absence of a central medallion allows for an endless array of tasteful decorative possibilities. This is one of the finest carpets from that bygone age and has been perfectly preserved.

What our customers say!

You can't only be a customer of Hadi Maktabi. While his main purpose is rug dealing, he starts with story telling and ends with history selling. That's what I call high-end art curating and closing it all with an entertaining friendship. George El Hani, CEO Levica, Lebanon 🇱🇧



I must say this one of the most enriching carpet purchase experiences I ever had. This was not a mere transaction but more an experience about art and history. Dr Maktabi's experience and knowledge in this space is second to none. Highly recommended! R.A., Doha, Qatar


J’ai fait la connaissance de Hadi lors de la préparation de l’exposition « L’Empire des roses, chefs-d’œuvre de l’art persan du 19ème siècle » qui a eu lieu au Louvre-Lens en 2018 et à laquelle il a participé par le prêt de tapis exceptionnels. J’avais alors été impressionnée par ses connaissances et sa passion pour les tapis orientaux. Cette rencontre a marqué le début d’une collaboration riche et fructueuse. Elle a notamment permis au musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac de voir ses collections iraniennes s’enrichir de plusieurs tapis et tentures dont certains n’ont pas leur équivalent dans les musées occidentaux. Ce que j’apprécie chez Hadi ? C’est son professionnalisme, son dynamisme et l’engouement qu’il a pour son métier !
