Breathtaking And Artistic Antique Coral Color Persian Sultanabad Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 –
Six large scale ivory designs pop against the coral background and as a result, they become the main focus of the design. Fascinatingly enough, top ivory emblems are cut off. This results in them being spaced in a way that their center does not fall within the center of the antique rug itself.
The off center design technique of this coral color Persian Sultanabad rug allowed the artist to create a sense of larger space. It tricks the brain into extending the repeating patterns beyond the borders of the rug.
This antique coral color Persian Sultanabad rug has horizontal symmetry. The larger motifs are situated an equal distance from the center, but the design still appears to go over the edges.
