(Connoisseur-Caliber) This 150-year-old Persian Sultanabad oversize offers a stunning color palette and a very seldom-encountered, generous width. Its all-over pattern breathes new life into the traditional Herati design, using a grand scale which invites the eye to relish an unusually enticing range of colors. There is a wonderful diversity of scale from the largest frond motifs to the tiniest of flowers, creating an effect reminiscent of the nighttime sky. Fascinating shades of royal blue and aquamarine redouble this effect, bringing profound depth to the all-over design. Its vast reach of color palette provides the primary animating force, as unusual juxtapositions of softened carnelian, warm golds and rare greens and robin's egg blues contribute tremendous energy.
