Genuine Jafari Gonbad Tabriz Persian rug with a BRAND NEW DESIGN...
This is the first new Gonbad design that the Jafari family in Tabriz has made in years and it combines two of the classic dome shape pattern. The center medallion features the tear drop Gonbad design and the outside the more classic one. Being that the Gonbad design is my personal favorite, I immediately claimed it when my family was able to purchase it.
If you look at the last picture of the Tabriz rug, you will see the Jafari signature, which is in the center and kind of hard to see. The Jafari family in Tabriz was one of the first to pioneer the Gonbad design and we have been buying many of their Gonbad pieces as soon as they become available. The colors and design in this piece are so beautiful and while I have often wondered what a Gonbad piece would like if it had both designs, I never actually thought it would work until now. The workmanship is just as beautiful as the design and I can only hope that the Jafari family will make more of this design in more sizes.
