Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This lushly-piled antique carpet’s unusually inventive and accomplished artistry is a pleasure to behold. Such joie de vivre, such expressive color striation, such effervescent yet balanced botanical drawing! This exemplary late 19th century room size Sultanabad offers a wide chromatic display of skillfully wrought vegetally dyed warm tones balanced by cooler greens, blues and midnight indigo shades. The soft crimson ground is particularly notable for the constant, sumptuous tonal abrash that adds great depth and subtle movement to this one-of-a-kind pattern. The uncommonly wide scale of proportion between field elements contributes greatly to this impressive carpet’s overall artistic impact. Learn About This Rug Type
