Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is a truly exceptional and highly intriguing antique rug – an antique Sultanabad carpet that was woven in Persia around the turn of the twentieth century. An important and widely admired style of antique Persian rugs, antique Sultanabad rugs and carpets are sought after by collectors and admirers who prize these rugs for their impeccable, classically inspired compositions. With a highly desirable ivory field, this impressive sampler or wagireh exhibits luscious floral designs intended for larger carpets. The colors in this sampler subtly play with one another’s complimentary hues. Perhaps the most attractive quality of all antique Oriental rugs — and, more specifically, of antique Persian rugs — is the way in which they encapsulate the aesthetic values of the peoples responsible for their composition. This sampler rug is a great example of this phenomenon, for even though it is relatively small in size and sparse in ornamentation, it still speaks to those aesthetic values considered most important by the master weavers of Sultanabad.
