Antique Large Persian Sultanabad Rug 49076
Antique Large Persian Sultanabad Rug 49076, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Like other extravagant antique Sultanabad rugs, this masterpiece features a complicated series of interconnected curls and shapes, all of which take the viewer on a journey across the landscape. Because of how muted and gentle the colors are, the artist relies on subtle contrast to create points of interest around the rest of the piece. A relatively complex border surrounds the active center of the antique rug, the frame itself surrounded on both sides by a series of smaller lines and borders that act as outlines to the shapes within. Soft salmon, sage green, light blue, and creamy beige define the landscape, resulting in a pleasantly foggy vista.
