This unique turn-of-the-20th-century Sultanabad carpet offers both allover and medallion formats in a uniquely successful marriage of styles. An elegantly striking Rococo medallion features a stunning lotus at its center, glowing in rich saffron, oxblood, azure, and deep coral. A consummately knotted classical Herati pattern of diamond lattice, rosettes, and curving leaves provides a stunning matrix for the suave medallion to rest upon. Here the traditional design becomes an inventively expanded and enlarged filigree for stunning visual effect. At home, both in contemporary and traditional decors, antique Sultanabad carpets offer unexpected palettes, such as this piece with its glittering colors on a field of glowing ivory. This versatile room-size carpet is in extraordinarily good condition and can easily create an engaging decor with its balanced artistry and overwhelmingly joyful disposition.
