Rustic And Eye Catching Antique Blue Persian Sultanabad Room Size Area Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1880 – The highly skilled rug weavers of some of the best antique Persian Sultanabad rugs have a distinct style that makes them unique among the antique Persian rugs of the world. This beautiful antique room size rug was woven around the end of the 19th century and is a truly phenomenal example.

The field of this beautiful Persian Sultanabad rug features a soft antiqued blue background and floral elements rendered in juxtaposing colors that allow the design to stand out. While the large palmettes do pop against the blue background, they will not have an overpowering effect within the room. This is mostly due to the artist created this piece and distributed the colors throughout the design, creating a balance as the rustic field, large palmettes and borders both receive equal attention.
One of the unique characteristics of this magnificent blue rug is that, at first, it appears to feature a central design that serves as a medallion. However, if you look more closely, it appears that the entire field design has shifted as the “medallion” is not in the exact center of the design. This creates artistic interest and the illusion of size and scale that go beyond the borders of the Persian rug.
