SULTANABAD, West Central Persian

284cm x 305cm
Late 19th Century
Showcasing a rare combination of deeply saturated natural dyes, including a cerulean blue base and burnished gold in its center medallion and spandrels, this is among the most dramatic examples of the casually elegant artistry we have encountered in the fine 19th century Sultanabad rugs. Rich striations of hue (known as abrash) shimmer across the field, while a majestic medallion presides with elegant, balanced symmetry. Seldom found, virtually square dimensions and outstanding condition make this stirring antique Persian Sultanabad carpet even more compelling.
