(Connoisseur-Caliber) A nearly square format is just one of the highly desirable attributes of this top-tier, 150-year-old Persian Sultanabad carpet, where masterful orchestration of traditional motifs brings about an enrapturing presence. Large scale, creatively rendered blossoms in deeply time-softened hues of celadon, rose, azure and linen, supported by a magical patina, attest to its quite early origins. The eight exquisitely rendered bands that frame the field comprise one of the most memorable series of borders we have experienced in an antique Oriental rug of any type. All in all, this is a profoundly inspired departure from the high decorative aesthetic most often found in this style, sure to be coveted among rug connoisseurs. Learn About This Rug Type
