Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century – This absolutely beautiful, majestic antique rug – an antique Persian Sultanabad rug woven in Persia (the modern day country of Iran) – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This amazing Persian rug possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. This traditional Sultanabad carpet features an archetypal Herati pattern woven into the lozenge medallion and mirrored in the corner spandrels. The design is completed by traditional reciprocating guardband motifs and elongated turtle-style borders woven over a sienna-red ground that provides stunning contrast against the camel-colored field, central medallion and Persia blue accents used to highlight the split-leaf Herati motifs. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its traditional design and fantastic composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
