Beautiful Large Gray Antique Sultanabad Persian Rug 49366, Country of Rug / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – A lesson in contrasts, this stunning antique Persian Sultanabad carpet features bold patterns that make it a real yet somewhat subtle statement piece for any interior decor. Covering the large center area, earthy motifs of medallions, feathers and floral pop off the dark background with bursts of cream and orange tones. The larger accenting border mirrors the center, with the brighter shades taking a starring role, and the dark accents peeking in and out of the smaller motifs as they dance around the rug. Thin, delicate borders that bring the design together in a neat and cohesive arrangement separate each section. This antique Persian rug has a distinct somewhat distressed patina, with fold lines visible both horizontally and vertically along the weave.
