Isfahan under Shah Abbas the Great, was the Persian capital and had a famous royal rug factory. The favorite designs, apart from the familiar animal patterns and hunting scenes, were the richly decorative ones of the Safavid period. Thus, the Austrian Emperor’s rug may have been made in Isfahan. During the reign of Shah Abbas, Ispahan had good relations with Herat. Chinese artists also influenced the designs of the royal factory, although it is conceivable that the Chinese emblems which appeared in the rugs of the sixteenth and the early seventeenth centuries –such as banks of clouds, Chintamani, bats, etc. – were borrowed by Persian designers of Chinese porcelain. Herat's influence at Isphahan, seems apparent in the motifs of the Herati design and the Herati border which occasionally are traceable in late Isfahan rugs. In addition to this kind of pattern is found a preference for the traditional palmettes, whose origin can be traced to the late classical period. The arabesque, also which had appeared in the East in the Middle Ages, was revived in Isfahan, and with it, of course, its components, the forked tendril and the everted calys. It is uncertain when the court factory ceased production, but it was certainly before the beginning of the eighteenth century.
