SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
12' 0" x 16' 1"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) Boasting an extremely seldom encountered and versatile golden field, this sophisticated Sultanabad antique carpet is one of the jewels of our collection of 19th century Persian village rugs. Its enrapturing patina lends an inimitable luster to a stunning spectrum of 135-year old tones. Softly outlined rosettes, fronds and vinery create a sumptuous low-contrast atmosphere across this magnificent antique carpet, where a balanced range of golden sand ground hues and mellowed reds are augmented by delicate sapphire blue and celadon accents. The inventive, casual asymmetry of its stylized field design is dramatically enlivened by extremely nuanced abrash striation that imparts depth and continual subtle movement to this antique Persian art carpet.
