ZIEGLER SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
8' 0" x 11' 3"
(High-Decorative) A profusion of jewel tone colors brings a vibrant, almost tropical character to this antique 19th century Persian Sultanabad carpet in the coveted Ziegler style. An unusually fine weave and closely shorn pile lends crystal clarity to the large proportioned design. An abundance of delightful hues, including glowing golds, apple green, salmon, copper, vermilion and apricot, support its entirely singular grand aquamarine medallion, given tremendous visual depth by skillful abrash (intentional color striation). Wide ivory corner pieces contribute stately outlines and pastel botanical forms. This stunning antique Oriental rug would be the perfect fit for a grand parlor or entry hall where natural light can energize its resonant natural hues, although it would shine brilliantly in virtually any environment.
