(Decorative) The ivory ground and much sought-after overall lighter tonality is exceptional in the antique Persian rug realm where deeper blues and reds predominate. In this extremely charming antique Sultanabad rug, smaller dark blue and brown diamonds are etched into the design while being arranged into larger diamonds themselves, thus bringing more dimensionality to the composition. A warm carnelian red in the main border and medallion and a delicate use of rich saffron yellow in the minor borders brings great warmth to the palette. As part of its history the rug's size was professionally reduced to this almost-never-found square proportion. The cost, therefore, is also happily reduced--resulting in exquisite artistry for the value. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG AT CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815)
