SULTANABAD - West Central Persian

Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) Ivory field Sultanabad carpets are among the rarest and most sought after of this Persian village rug style. Here, the unique layering of classic, elegant medallion and cornerpiece format upon a sophisticated allover design is a highly creative and welcome departure that seamlessly blends both of the traditional Sultanabad formats at once. Its palette has a soft, earth tone quality, with slate grey, beige, robinís egg blue, emerald green and terracotta appearing in the main border alone. The midnight indigo medallion itself is incredibly original, eschewing elaborate pendants for an understated, smaller scale approach that grounds the rug amidst this dense complexity of design.
