(High-Decorative) This lush village Sultanabad carpet offers the best of both worlds, possessing both a highly decorative style and heart-warming artistry. Be sure to take note of its wonderfully overscale all-over pattern of dissimilar flowerheads connected by delicately drawn vinery, and its abundance of prized green and gold tones, along with creative use of abrash (intentional color striation) throughout its soft naturally dyed warm melon-hued field. At over a century of age, its superb, glistening wool is in virtually perfect, full-pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
