SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
9ft 4in x 13ft 9in
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
One of the most astonishing oriental carpets in the Hudson River Valley collection is this extraordinarily innovative antique Sultanabad. An artfully chosen, naturally dyed, golden wheat tone provides a glowing backdrop for its field populated by asymmetrically placed, continually changing blossom and vinery motifs. The traditional Persian border format is abandoned almost entirely, as the two secondary borders bear no resemblance in design or size. All of these elements masterfully combine to create an unexpectedly engaging impression through a presentation that is soft-spoken, yet eloquent.
