SULTANABAD, West Central Persian
10' 6" x 13' 3" Late 19th Century Price: $38,000
A diverse array of exotic hues, including leaf green, coral, and celadon, add great visual interest to the highly engaging composition of this striking Persian Sultanabad antique rug. Excellent craftsmanship and excellent wool quality make for an unusual level of articulation of design. In this 130-year-old Oriental carpet, a prized ivory field with crisp carnelian hues, a single, intentionally asymmetrical diamond medallion is bedecked with an expansive Herati pattern, its traditional stylized frond, blossom and lattice elements having an unusually expressive quality. Superb condition is yet another central attribute. The best antique Sultanabad Persian rugs such as this are the centerpieces of the high-style decors of many of our clients.
