EMBARGO ON IMPORTATION OF PERSIAN/IRANIAN WORKS OF ART TO THE U.S.A
Please note that there may be restrictions on importing certain types of property of Persian/Iranian origin into the United States. Clients should enquire with the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regarding the proper importation of items subject to such restrictions. Due to recent changes in U.S. law, carpets and rugs of Iranian/Persian origin may no longer be imported into the U.S. Please contact Sotheby's if you are uncertain as to whether a lot is subject to these or any other restrictions or if you need assistance with such enquiries.

This striking fragment appears to derive its design from a group of earlier carpets ascribed to Tabriz, although on examination, the knotting suggests a Northeast Persian attribution is possible for this piece. Classical Khorossan carpets often display designs derived from earlier courtly examples. There is another fragment of this same carpet in the Düsseldorf Kunstmuseum, published Concaro & Levi (1999), no.51, p.74.

For complete examples of the Tabriz medallion carpets see the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon, or the carpet formerly in the Christopher Alexander Collection, sold Sotheby's London, 7 November 2017, lot 89. The most similar, in terms of cartoon, is in the MAK, Vienna, see Völker (2001), Vienna, pp. 256 & 257, pl. 90.
