Woven in Sultanabad during the turn of the century, this antique carpet features an ornate arabesque woven with an unusual asymmetric composition.

Antique Sultanabad Rug, Persia, circa 1900 – This unique piece is decorated with a striking combination of curvilinear vine scrolls and angular boteh motifs woven in a combination of warm colors that are counterbalanced by the dark and subtly abrashed field. Boteh-motif inner borders and narrow camel brown guard bands decorated with reciprocating floral vine scrolls complement the neutral tones used throughout the elegant field. Sinuous vine scroll quatrefoils featuring poly chromatic shading link the ornate rosettes and palmette medallions that dominate the composition. Strongly re curving vine scrolls decorated with superfluous floral details and golden-yellow saz-leaf motifs form a series of dramatic spirals across the midnight blue field. Woven during the turn of the 20th century, this exquisite antique Persian rug features an unusual asymmetric composition and a warm Mediterranean color scheme reminiscent of weavings from Anatolia.
