Seldom is a prized light ground antique Persian Sultanabad carpet found in such a grand size as this 14x20 piece. The glistening golden wheat base brilliantly offsets an intriguing double latticework all-over field pattern. Click through to the massive image to see how the continually changing tones in the horizontal keyhole designs range from rust to soft salmon to rose creating significant visual depth. A striking stylization of blossoms and leaves in the border substantially augments the graciousness of this rug. This highly desirable oversize Persian village carpet is remarkably preserved in virtually full-pile condition at over a century of age.
