(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This elite-caliber oversize,150-year-old Sultanabad displays a profoundly moving level of artistry, the result of an innovative, highly evocative design combined with harmoniously combined colors. An astonishing center axis is created by an extremely seldom-seen suite of three inventive overscale split palmettes. A showpiece of adroit vegetable dyeing, here a number of exotic hues adorn the cobalt blue field, including celadon, jade green, taupe, olive, fern, and burnt copper. The center split palmette motif features a wholly unique and salient abrash (artistic color striation) that unifies many of the hues found throughout this majestic rug that has been lovingly preserved in superb condition.
