Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") Reflecting hints of European influence in Persian rugs over a century ago, the field of this magnetic Sultanabad carpet is filled with a grand Mustafavi pattern of winged botanical fronds and curling tendrils surrounding wreathed bouquets. The tremendous clarity and fabulous larger scale make it both compelling and fluid. This highly evocative design is also awash with harmonious colors. A showpiece of adroit vegetable dyeing, many sophisticated hues adorn the Prussian blue field, including celadon, jade green, blazing tangerine, bronze, olive, fern, burnt copper, and many others. Salient abrash color shifts unify the diverse palette found throughout. This majestic carpet has been lovingly kept in superb condition and is meant to be the foundation of a welsoming, artful decor.
