(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This magnificent, unusually early palace-size Sultanabad captures this genre’s uniquely relaxed, yet refined ambiance. Its ground color meant to bring quiet warmth is pitch-perfect terra cotta, enabled by exquisite, rarely seen teal and chartreuse greens, burnished gold, bluebird blue, blush, and cinnamon. Presenting a superbly spacious overall pattern of elegant, larger-scale palmettes and open-face blossoms that float in an orderly parade up the field, this grand piece’s age-softened splendor is meant to harmoniously distinguish a grand space. The classical set of seven borders used in formal Persian court carpets here expresses a winsome degree of informality that completes this carpet’s stately visage. Its extraordinarily good condition is another extremely welcome feature, Learn About This Rug Type
