Sultanabad Oriental Carpet Detail

SULTANABAD, West Central Persian 18ft 4in x 24ft 4in Circa 1875

A impeccable instance of the consummate patina exclusively attainable in antique Persian rugs of significant age, this exceptional antique palace-size Sultanabad oriental carpet crafted 140-years-ago is the ‘holy-grail’ for so many interior designers and clients, as it possesses an incredibly unique atmosphere by employing luminous low contrast colors in conjunction with spacious overscale designs. The art of intentional continuous color striations, or “abrash,” is utilized to magnificent effect here, giving this antique carpet a three-dimensional, glowing quality.
