(High-Decorative) Spirited artistry is immediately apparent in this mesmerizing antique Sultanabad Persian rug, which brings together the best attributes of both medallion and allover village styles with the weaver's highly experienced eye for artistic balance. An eye-catching medallion and cornerpieces are outlined in striking ivory, with highly original botanical flourishes that extend into the intricate allover latticework of the field. A rhythmic pattern of sharply rendered garlands, bouquets and diminutive flowers is drawn with painstaking clarity, imparting a balanced, energetic presence. The richness of its brick red base makes this carpet even more appealing. (For more information, call Claremont II at 800-883-1815)
