We very rarely see antique Sultanabad carpets that so successfully introduce so many eye-catching color hues into such a brilliantly integrated, harmonious presentation. Look closely to capture its sapphire and cobalt blue, celadon green, pomegranate, melon and tangerine tones that stand out vividly against the clear ivory base, then recede into the pulsating allover Herati composition. Borders appear as exquisitely wrought chains of pinpoint cartouche ornaments that are seamlessly compatible in scale and hue between well-proportioned compositional sections. To extend such creativity and attention to these oversize dimensions with a highly desirable unusually generous width reveals a truly impressive technical and artistic achievement. Viewers will be particularly pleased to discover that this superb quality, unusually large antique Persian carpet remains in wonderful condition.
