Beautiful Large Oversized Antique Persian Rust Color Sultanabad Rug, Persia, Late 19th Century – This antique Persian Sultanabad rug was woven during the late 19th century and features a traditional rust color palette as well as natural inspired design elements.
The most striking and vibrant aspect of this extra large oversized rug is the bright rust color tone that are present in the interior design of the central field. The curving vine and leaf inspired designs stand out against this rust color due to their creamy ivory and fresh green tones.

The border of this magnificent antique rug is a darker color, making the cream colored lines stand out in a bold and eye catching way against this rich dark ground. The patterns in the border of this rust color Sultanabad rug are natural inspired elements as well, with shapes reminiscent of leaves or feathers making their home among small flowers and lighter colored vines. On either side of the border with the dark ground, there are two smaller stripes which each feature a pattern of their own. The addition of these secondary borders give the rust color Sultanabad rug a dynamic feel as well as making it look extremely elegant. The two patterns within this antique Oriental rug work together beautifully to create a stunningly elegant work of art.
