This Sultanabad has a fine pattern of rosettes in alternating rows against a soft terracotta ground.
Beautiful Antique Sultanabad Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – This engaging and unique antique Oriental rug — an antique Sultanabad rug which was woven in Persia some time around the turn of the twentieth century — represents a design not often seen in the world of antique Persian Sultanabad rugs. In place of the sweeping large-scale palmette designs typical of most antique Sultanabads, this particular piece has a finer pattern of varied rosettes in earth tones and soft blue arranged alternating rows against a soft terracotta ground. The gentler, more rapid rhythms and textures of the field recur in the lovely soft blue border that surrounds the antique rug and echoes the blue touches in the field. An example of the tremendous variety in design and composition that can occur within even the same rug-making tradition, this antique Persian Sultanabad rug is a unique and wonderful achievement.
