(High-Decorative) Bold innovation is often a hallmark of the very best antique art carpets, as master weavers demonstrate their consummate technical and aesthetic proficiency by introducing their own highly creative flourishes to longstanding traditional designs. This superb small room size antique Sultanabad rug is one such piece, incorporating an entirely one-of-a-kind medallion into the masterfully articulated latticework of its prized ivory ground. Though botanical devices abound in village Oriental carpets, this unique medallion design seems to be living and breathing, opening a window to organic, draping vinery with realistic individual flora. One of the finest works we have seen in this village style, a spectrum of warm hues, illumined by the soft patina of great age, dance on the natural ivory field, creating an entirely original vision.
