(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.7")Epitomizing the seldom-seen, deeply appealing design and color combinations that distinguish our collection, this room size 19th-century Persian village carpet expresses a welcoming ambiance that transcends decorative style. At nearly 140 years of age, this alluring Sultanabad offers an artistic character that is often imitated but never equaled because of the genuine patina achieved through great age that brings out constant variation in each feathery frond and mint-toned rosette. Although many modern carpets have been inspired by Sultanabads such as this, they are simply incapable of providing either the mature artistic restraint of this original antique weaving or its palpable effect in a room.
