A vivid example of the great originality of the room-size carpets amassed in our collection, this 11-1/2 x 13-1/2 piece with its entirely unexpected center mandala is a true rarity among antique Sultanabads. With undeniable majesty, a shimmering field of dense, exquisitely colored blossoms unfolds in an array of soft-toned colors. Unexpectedly upon this deep indigo backdrop, a diminutive square medallion enclosing a stylized samovar provides an intriguing golden focus, ably supported by luxurious stepped cornerpieces. Also offering a highly sought-after generous width, this incredibly nuanced art carpet comes to us in exceedingly good condition for its substantial age.
