SULTANABAD, West Central Persian

(High-Collectible) One of the most astonishing, early Persian village carpets in our current collection is this extraordinarily innovative, 150-year-old 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. Learn About This Rug Type
