("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.10")The most noteworthy antique Persian rugs were created during the period before commercialization diluted the magical color hues and entrancing pattern language of the traditional Oriental carpet. With its tonal striation reminiscent of a watercolor painting, this sublime oversize Persian carpet could not have been produced during a later period. Both its masterful use of pure natural dyes and its fluid drawing reflect skills that have been irrevocably lost. This magnificent piece features the attributes that are most prized in antique Sultanabad carpets: a very spaciously placed pattern of lyrical overscale motifs and an exotic color palette.
