Beautiful Ivory Background Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Antique Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1890's - This beautiful, one-of-a-kind antique Oriental rug comes to us from the late 19th century Qajar Dynasty in Persia. This antique Persian Sultanabad rug has simple, yet elegant ivory edges, free from the frills and business of other Persian rugs, giving it a much more functional appearance.
The outer most ivory border is repeated several times, in smaller applications within the rug. The ivory band surrounding the carpet perfectly compliments the larger red inner border, which is itself intricately adorned with perfectly preserved blues and grays. Within the next inner guard border is an intricate design of reds, whites, and blues, which gently hugs the ivory colored field which serves as the centerpiece of this fine antique rug.
The center ivory field of this antique Persian Sultanabad rug really draws everything together. Every thread works together in concert to create a beautiful center to this incredible carpet. The soft ivory color from the outer and inner borders serves as the main eye-catching component, drawing the viewer in to gaze upon the beautiful and somewhat symmetrical design.
The light blues are the surprise stars of this section of the antique Persian Sultanabad rug. They draw the viewer's eyes in to focus on the center of the Persian carpet as a whole, rather than any individual aspect.
This Late 19th century Qajar Dynasty Persian Sultanabad rug is an absolute delight to behold, and would be the perfect addition to any mansion or antique rug collection.
