Antique Sultanabad Carpet, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa 1900 — Bright contrasting colors provide plenty of movement for the eye to enjoy in this antique rug. Like most Persian carpets, this one skillfully uses flower motifs and forms to create flow and direction along the carpet, resulting in a vivacious scene that almost seems to spring out from the carpet. A deep cobalt blue border features gold blossoms and forms within, itself surrounded by smaller frames that create depth and contrast along the work. A vibrant vermilion field graces the carpet’s middlemost area, laden with soft beige and cream petals and stems, all dancing around each other, as if carried by the wind.
