SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
12' 4" x 16' 8"
376cm x 508cm
Late 19th Century
Created by the passage of more than a century, a glow of patina dignifies this beautifully colored Persian Sultanabad oversize carpet, showcasing a mature color palette filled with harmonious natural hues. Two beloved overall patterns--a series of palmettes in the field and shrub latticework in the medallion and spandrels--enrich the field. A slightly asymmetrical diamond medallion and broad cornerpieces with irregular outlines imbue this carpet with delightful idiosyncrasies revealing the spirited hand-knotting of its spontaneous, creative Town weavers. The more formal artistry of its elegant, intricate borders provides an intriguing counterbalance. This 12-1/2 x 16-1/2 antique Persian rug is in very good floor condition.
