(Connoisseur-Caliber) This is a best-of-the-best 19th century antique carpet in the ever-beloved Persian Sultanabad style. It features the most desirable attributes one hopes to see in antique Persian rugs from this village weaving group. The spacing in this antique Oriental rug's all-over pattern of vastly overscale palmettes is extremely generous. The design is painterly and the drawing of the motifs chiseled. The color palette is truly sublime and offers exotic tones of apple green, peach and apricot. Although 150 years old, the condition of this antique Sultanabad rug allows it to be comfortably used in virtually any application. Learn About This Rug Type
