SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
8' 9" x 11' 9"
267cm x 358cm
Late 19th Century
An unusually spacious rendition of the beloved Mustafavi pattern (stylized "Garden of Paradise") brings a dynamic character to this beautifully balanced approximately 130-year-old room-size Sultanabad carpet. Striking oversize fronds join individually drawn garlands and rose bouquets to create an energetic allover composition that is at once spontaneous, yet orderly. An entirely harmonious marriage of naturally dyed tones, including coral, indigo, sand, and celadon against a cobalt blue base, provide another unifying quality to this deeply lyrical composition that also happens to be in wonderful condition.
