SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
10' 4" x 13' 2"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) Exotic, desert reds on a crème field and a mesmerizing intricate latticework design provide the thematic base for this refreshing all-over patterned antique Sultanabad carpet. Its interplay of intricate, expansive botanical lattices makes an exquisitely textured pattern that is understated from a distance, but entrancing up close. The bright sand ground tone is not often encountered in antique Sultanabad pieces, particularly those that undertake such a fluid and effortless reinterpretation of the classic Herati allover design. Crimson, apricot, taupe and touches of sapphire blue provide the upbeat modern palette that, without any shadow tones, achieves a seldom seen and compelling departure from the traditional Oriental color way.
