Large Oversize Herati Pattern Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1910 – A hypnotically elaborate Herti fish design pattern crafted with dark stitches spreads across this antique Persian rug, filling every inch of the ivory-toned central field. The thin lines of this antique Persian Sultanabad rug interweave to form a psychedelic lattice strung with simple, circular blossoms in regular intervals. Light brushes of blue and yellow grace the complex design, adding touches of elegance here and there. Three slim bars, each detailed with simplified flowers and dark stems, surround the central field, matched by nearly identical bands on the opposite side of a wider, central border. Backed in navy blue, this widest band is chock full of light-toned floral decorations, featuring orange, yellow and blue flowers around geometric figures with striking symmetry.
