(High-Decorative) This quintessential "Ivory Sultanabad” carpet is a supremely decorative representative of this ardently desired Persian village rug sub-style. Its vastly overscale design elements are extremely widely spaced and completely unrestrained, with both large-scale rosettes and scrolling floral vinery extending fluidly in all directions. The asymmetry of the Oriental rug's major motifs create the sense that they are floating up and out from the field. The supporting palette of this antique Persian carpet is consistently exotic, with seldom-encountered hues of tangerine, celadon, camel, teal and citrine. In heavy pile condition, this virtuoso Oriental art rug offers great versatility for the widest range of applications and would be equally as at home in a contemporary decor as in a traditional setting.
