(High-Decorative) (“New Acquisition Sampling") This enthralling high-decorative Persian Sultanabad antique carpet achieves a brilliantly balanced design, enhanced by its singular palette of warm, energetic tones. In an elongated field, a glowing rose red ground provides the backdrop for a spirited, spaciously placed allover design of intricate flowerheads, fronds and vinery, carefully crafted with casual symmetry. Along the center, a series of understated small medallions anchors the space, while subtle abrash (intentional color striation) in the field gives the carpet a quiet depth. The much less often seen ivory border contributes a contemporary ambiance to this winsome room size carpet. Learn About This Rug Type
