Persian Sultanabad Carpet 44709
Sultanabad Carpet, Origin: Persia, Circa Early 21st Century — Contrasting hues create a vibrant display of life through this antique Sultanabad rug. Skilled use of soft azure against rich ruby allows both elements to stand on their own while simultaneously uniting the rest of the carpet’s motifs. Gold and buttermilk hues come together throughout, creating lines of motion in the hemming around the borders and in the rich details within the background. Between the gold stems and flowing vinework are several olive leaves and flowers that help tie in the rest of the piece’s motifs without drawing attention away from the theme itself.
