(Connoisseur-Caliber) This sublime oversize Sultanabad antique carpet employs a highly melodic all-over pattern and painterly color combinations to create a fascinating, supremely decorative piece. A spacious, unusually large-scale adaptation of the repeating "Herati" pattern rests upon the prized antique ivory ground, while subtle meandering vines blossom in the background of this antique oriental carpet. Delicate abrash (intentional color striation) undulates across the soft sage, rose, maize and sky blue tones of the field. At over 150 years of age, its extremely good condition makes this an even more memorable art-level antique rug. Learn About This Rug Type
