Antique Sultanabad Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This magnificent antique Persian rug from Sultanabad showcases a beautifully detailed oxidized red field adorned with a vast array of grand palmettes rendered in radiant yellow hues. The large-scale palmettes feature angular contours and deeply serrated edges along with an enrapturing selection of impressively detailed small-scale motifs. Multiple sets of secondary borders and guard bands frame the superbly detailed main borders that feature grand floral motifs set over a somber midnight blue background. Comb-like hand symbols, angular Turkic-influenced florals and formal botanical motifs outlined in contrasting colors create a magnificent level of contrast between the warm Mediterranean colors featured in the field and the somber tones displayed in the elaborate borders.
